Hello! I’m Rory Cerbus, and I am currently a researcher at the Laboratoire Ondes et Matiére d’Aquitaine (LOMA), Université de Bordeaux, in Bordeaux, France. I work on fluid mechanics and now granular flow. I’ve done research on turbulence, focusing on the transition from quiescent “laminar” flow to fluctuating “turbulent” flow in pipes, as well as on two-dimensional turbulence. Now I am focusing on granular flow and trying to understand why landslides can sometimes travel really far. Outside of the laboratory, I enjoy exploring and traveling with my wife and two kids.
