HUN-REN-BME Morphodynamics Research Group

Our main focus are mathematical and physical models of shape evolution with emphasis on geophysical and planetological applications, such as sand grains, pebbles, ventifacts, rock profiles, asteroids.

Welcome to our website


Our research group, founded in 2017, operates at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and it is supported on a 5-year (2022-2027), renewable special grant from the Hungarian Research Network (formerly Eötvös Loránd Research Network). Our goal is to collect, develop and apply existing mathematical models and test the models versus existing and self-produced experimental and field data. Ultimately we would like to gain insight on geophysical history based on current size and shape measurements.
