Office hour: Monday, 2:30-3:30pm
PhD projects: Projects in fluid mechanics are available. These will typically be a combination of theoretical (asymptotic) analysis and numerical methods. Please email me if you are interested in pursuing a project in this area.
Hydrodynamic Stability Theory (summer school): The lecture notes and associated material (HST applied to geophysical applications) can be found here. Students attending the course should have received the log-in details via email.
Undergraduate projects: I have a list of available projects here.
Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics.
My research is primarily aimed towards trying to predict the behaviour of fluid flows by a combination of theoretical, numerical and experimental techniques. Recent work has covered:
- Geophysical fluid dynamics:
- Rotating flows
- Stratified flows
- Interfacial flows
- Particle-laden flows
- Nonlinear stability of flows
- Boundary-layer flows
- Exact solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations
- Non-Newtonian fluids
