My research interests cover many areas related with fluid dynamics, e.g. plasma physics, solar physics, relativistic hydrodynamics, strongly coupled fluids (quark-gluon plasma, electronic transport in graphene, spin liquids), super-fluidity, flow in curved spaces and confined geometries, and turbulence. On the other hand, i am also involved in problems related with the penetration of adhesives in anisotropic porous media, including wood, and in the measurement of mechanical properties of wood junctions.

Some Movies and Images

Electronic flow in graphene passing through a constriction. In this video we can see the differences between non-relativistic and relativistic vortex shedding formation.

Relativistic shock wave, generated by a gamma-ray burst or X-ray flash supernova explosion, impacting on a massive interstellar cloud at beta=0.5. Here the streamlines represent the velocity field, and the colors the pressure. The simulation was implemented on a grid size of 200x100x100 cells.
