Organization profile

The lab's mission is threefold: 1) to advance fundamental knowledge in engineering, environmental, geophysical and biological fluid mechanics by conducting cross-cutting research that integrates various disciplines in science and engineering; 2) to benefit society by implementing this knowledge to develop physics-based, affordable, and sustainable engineering solutions to major environmental, water, ecosystem, health, and energy-related problems; and 3) to disseminate new knowledge to our students, the engineering and scientific community and the public by educational and outreach activities and partnerships with the government and industry.
