Welcome to Fluid Flow Physics Group

The University of Waterloo Fluid Flow Physics Group, headed by professor Sean D. Peterson, focuses on understanding fundamental and applied fluid mechanics problems using a blend of analytical modeling, numerical simulation, and experimental observation.

Current research topics include:

  • Influence of implanted stents on flow structures in curved arteries
  • Robotic fish propulsion using novel smart materials
  • Energy harvesting from coherent fluid structures

Please contact professor Peterson for further information on the research projects or to apply to the research group.
