Our main research topic is to investigate nonlinear dynamics in experimental setups. We use a variety of very precise Taylor-Couette apparatuses. One of the goals is to bring light to the question how chaos and turbulence develop in a flow.

We also do research in time series analysis, medical physics and other kinds of applied physics.
