Research Overview

Professor Thoroddsen's research work has appeared in 95 journal publications and over 60 proceedings, reports and abstracts. His work is in the area of experimental fluid mechanics, focusing on the use of ultra-high-speed video imaging to study the dynamics of free-surface flows and Tomo-PIV studies in turbulence. This includes the coalescence and breakup of drops and bubbles, splashing and spray formation, as well as the dynamics of fine jets of relevance to inkjet printers. He is also interested in coating flows, the dynamics of granular media, laser-produced cavitation dynamics and the spinning of nanofibers from electrified drops.
