Stavroula has expertise in experimental fluid mechanics and in particular the application of optical flow diagnostics to study vortex dynamics, separated and bluff body flows fluid structure interaction and microscale flows. Over the last five years, she has developed a strong interest in biofluids; she has been working with protein chemists to monitor shear induced conformational changes of proteins in situ and with clinicians to study the behaviour of human blood in the microvasculature using in vitro microfludic techniques and imaging.
