Dr. Dubief moved to Vermont in 2005 from the Center for Turbulence Research (Stanford University) where he was a research associate working on drag reduction in turbulent flows by additioni of polymers . At UVM, Dr. Dubief has been developing and collaborating research programs in turbulence control by complex fluids, flow-surface interactions with application to erosion and ablation by turbulent flows, biophysics of blood coagulation under flow and lubrication in articular joints. Dr. Dubief is a fellow of the Vermont Advanced Computing Center. He contributes to the teaching of fluid-related and computing-related undergraduate and graduate courses.
