research overview

  • Dr. Crimaldi’s research is focused on the role of structured and turbulent fluid flows on the transport, dispersion, and reaction of scalar quantities in the flow. Much of the work involves studies of physical-biological interactions in ecosystem dynamics. Dr. Crimaldi runs a state-of-the-art fluid mechanics laboratory that utilizes laser-based, non-intrusive technologies to quantify the spatial and temporal distribution of momentum and chemical fields. Numerical and analytical approaches are used to elucidate process-level aspects of these complex systems.


  • Physical-biological interactions, stirring and mixing, reactive transport, phytoplankton motility and patchiness
