I use direct numerical simulations and laboratory experiments to investigate the fluid dynamics of the interior of planets. I have interests in rotating convection and dynamo action, processes thought to be responsible for Earth's magnetic field. I also investigate multiphase flows, especially liquid fragmentation and liquid impacts, which played a key role during the large planetary collisions that formed terrestrial planets 4.5 billion years ago.
