Fluid mechanics in biology

We study turbulence effects on biology: fish swimming, moth anemotaxis (odor tracking), seaweed growth rates and green tides, birds flight and attachment of plankton.

We develop some unique experiments to study the interplay between turbulent flows and biology. We study male moths navigation in turbulent environments, based solely on odor spreading physics, motion of small organisms in the turbulent ocean, and intensive growth of macroalgae (in the photo below) under the effect of turbulent controlled mechanical stress.
