The Lab

We study fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodynamics occurring in geophysical settings. Using unique state-of-the-art laboratory devices (designed and built on-site) with associated numerical simulations, we investigate fundamental behaviors of fluid processes in planetary cores and atmospheres.
