My research interests are focused on problems related to fluid dynamics and kinetic theory. Specifically, I am currently working on the dissipation enhancement generated by a general Hamiltonian flow in the advection-diffusion equation. The description of the dynamics of vortex pairs in the 2D Navier-Stokes equations and in transition threshold problems in fluids and kinetic equations.

You can find my PhD thesis here, whose title is "*Linear stability analysis of stationary Euler flows for passive scalars and inhomogeneous fluids*".
