Part of the TCSS Symposium

In this presentation, I will show you how applied mathematics plays an important role in the understanding of our natural environment. My research expertise covers granular materials and I have traveled to various places on this earth to investigate the behavior of snow avalanches in mountains and sand dunes in deserts. Our research group combines field experiments with laboratory experiments, in the GK Batchelor laboratory underneath the courtyard of CMS , and uses mathematical tools to model these observations. Our goal is to understand the dynamic behavior of granular flows and potentially even predict some outcomes of avalanches.
