We explore the wave dynamics in water and in air. 

Our lab combines experiments, analytical analysis and develops computational tools.

The research on water waves actively relates to variuos phenomena in ocean, lakes and atmosphere, such as wave evolution, wave breaking, wave- wind interaction, internal waves, etc. 

The research on shock waves is linked to supersoonic/ hypersonic aircraft design and  to protective technologies' design, such as shock wave refelections over variuos  surfaces and propagation of shock-waves at different media.
