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".
