FRANCESCO BATTISTA

Research interests

My research concerns fluid dynamics, turbulence, and combustion. Research topics include particle/bubble dynamics in turbulent flows, turbulence-combustion interaction, modeling of reacting turbulent flows, numerics/experiments comparison in turbulent combustion, turbulent-mixing in supercritical conditions, hemodynamics in real vessels, boundary layer separation in turbulent flows, superhydrophobicity effects on wall-turbulence.
