Fluid dynamics: - particularly hydrodynamic instabilities, transition and turbulence with applications in geophysics and astrophysics (e.g. currently convecting and stably-stratified flows in the oceans and atmospheres, tidal, precessional and librational motion of planetary interiors and subsurface oceans, accretion disks).

1. Pilot-Wave Hydrodynamics. Recent experiments by Couder and coworkers have shown that small drops can bounce repeatedly on a vibrating liquid bath. These drops can also `walk' across the bath by a resonant interaction with the waves generated by its bouncing and apparently display many features reminiscent of quantum mechanics (e.g. the bouncing ...
