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 mixing to study quantitatively the following problems: long-time behavior of passive scalars, convergence to given equilibria in hydrodynamic stability problems or in kinetic theory in a weakly collisional regime.

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