Dr. Granlund is interested in unsteady experimental fluid mechanics, vortex dynamics and flow control.

The graduate students working under his direction are curious, motivated, and open to new ideas. A large part of research is to combine knowledge from several disciplines to solve difficult problems in easier ways. Dr. Granlund’s role as an advisor is to point students in the right direction and away from pitfalls while they train to become independent researchers.

Outside of work, Dr. Granlund enjoy hiking, bicycling and spending time with family outdoors.
