Manikantan, HarishankarHari Manikantan works on mathematical modeling of continuum mechanics, and is broadly interested in problems involving fluid dynamics, multiphase flows, elasticity, soft matter, numerical methods, rheology, biophysics, hydrodynamic stability, nonlinear dynamics, and pattern formation. His current research interests include the nonlinear rheology of fluid interfaces in lipid layers, emulsions, and foams; the configurational dynamics and stability of elastic microfilaments such as biopolymers; and the flow of non-Newtonian fluids in porous media with applications in plant vasculature.
