Turbulence is a flow state displaying spatio-temporal complexity. It is ubiquitous in nature, from a running tap to atmospheric currents and understanding how flows transition to turbulence has become a key question with societal and natural impact. Recent research has realized the importance of spatial localisation in transition: most of the perturbations that are the most likely to transition to turbulence for the same input energy display temporal localisation. In this PhD, I am studying how spatially localised states transition to turbulence.
