Dr. Ó'Náraigh is an applied mathematician by training, interested in the application of any mathematical tool to any problem of practical interest. Prof. Ó'Náraigh's research falls under the three following areas:
1. Interfacial instability of two-phase stratified flows;
2. Turbulence in two dimensions with reference to mixing;
3. Applications of the Cahn-Hilliard equation
Topic 1 inovles linear-stability analyses to describe absolute and convective instabilities in Reynolds-averaged stratified flow systems. Topic 2 involves the modelling and simulation of turbulence in two dimensions, including the application of stochstic methods. Topic 3 is a very diverse area and in the past, has involved chaotic mixing and lubrication theory.
