A large spectrum of multi-disciplinary research is conducted in the TMUAL . Examples of research interests include the study of the flow over a pitching airfoil, the investigation of an excited two stream shear layer flow, the examination of the intake flow dynamics of an internal combustion engine, uni-directional solidification of a binary alloy, molecular mixing studies, bio-inspired flows, electroosmotically driven flows, etc. Three techniques comprise the backbone of the TMUAL's fluid flow quantification approach which allow us to non-intrusively measure velocity and temperature characteristics of the fluid:

Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF)
Molecular Tagging Velocimetry (MTV)
Molecular Tagging Thermometry (MTT)
