I conduct research in the area of physical acoustics, particularly nonlinear acoustics, and in recent years with an emphasis on biomedical applications. My research involves primarily analytical and computational modelling. I am currently involved in research on acoustic radiation force in tissue, acoustically driven bubble dynamics in blood vessels, nonlinear shear waves in relaxing media, shock formation in media exhibiting non-classical attenuation and dispersion, single-bubble sonoluminescence in tissue-like media, nonlinear acoustic metamaterials, nonlinear elastic surface waves, and nonlinear propagation of dolphin sonar.
