Michael BERHANU

Physicist in fluid mechanics and non-linear physics.


I am an experimentalist interested by fundamental considerations in non-linear physics and out of equilibrium systems.
Since October 2010 I joined the laboratory MSC (Matter and Complex Systems).

Chargé de recherche au CNRS.

Laboratory "Matter & Complex Systems"  (MSC lab)

With Adrien Guérin, Caroline Cohen, Julien Derr and Sylvain Courrech du Pont



Surface Waves and Wave Turbulence. Gravity-capillary wave turbulence. Waves-interactions
With Florence Haudin, Luc Deike and Eric Falcon.
Member of collaboration Turbulon (ECN Nantes, LPS Ens, CEA Saclay)  

Surface waves generation by an underwater moving bottom.
With Timothée Jamin, Leonardo Gordillo,
Gerardo Ruiz Chavarria (UNAM Mexico) and Eric Falcon.

● Turbulence and free surface flows. Interaction between surface waves and flows.
With Timothée Jamin and Eric Falcon.

Granular gas of magnetized particles
With Simon Merminod
and Eric Falcon.

Capillarity and aggregation of floating particles.


I have worked also on Granular materials, Geomorphology (seepage erosion), Turbulence and Magnetohydrodynamics.
