Research Interests

I’m interested in the application of mathematics to problems in fluid mechanics.

Mostly this has focussed on the transition to turbulence in shear flows. This classical problem still finds new ways to connect with a diverse range of physics, recently pattern formation and directed percolation.

More generally this means any problem where a combination of modelling, bifurcation analysis and spectral methods are important.

More to come shortly!
