Research and Practice Interests

Convection, Traveling Waves, Crystal Growth, Optical Tomography, and Holographic Interferometry. Dendritic crystal growth is investigated using optical interferometric techniques. Fourier fringe analysis and optical tomography are used to map the temperature field in the melt surrounding the crystal.
