Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Chair
Geophysical fluid dynamics (GFD) concerns the fluid motions of the atmosphere and ocean, and environmental dynamics such as river and coastal flows. This includes river flood, beach erosion due to breaking waves, tides, and weather prediction.
- EPSRC NPIF PhD funding deadline 31-05: Cockpit simulator fast ships in heavy seas & AI for flood control in 21st century cities
- Numerical weather modelling of strongly rotating convection with phase changes 2017-2018 (with Prof. Steve Tobias, funding available)
- PhD: Dredging the depths of mathematics: dynamic beaches and sand bars (with data validation and applications in coastal hazard mitigation)
My particular interest is in the applied mathematics of environmantal fluid dynamics: design and testing of laboratory configurations for validation of mathematical models, computational techniques for PDEs (DGFEM), Hamiltonian fluid dynamics, and hydraulic solutions of hyperbolic systems. I also investigate geological and industrial problems related to GFD. Examples are safety of underground storage sites due to break throughs (of volcanic magma) and granular flows in blast furnaces.
