Personal profile


Dr Pringle is a Senior Lecturer in Fluid Dynamics with the Applied Mathematics Research Centre of Coventry University. He began his PhD (entitled `Transition in Pipe Flow: Nonlinear Mechanisms’) at the University of Bristol’s School of Mathematics in 2005. This work led to him being invited to give international seminars and taking up a FLUBIO Fellowship at the Facolta di Igegneria at the University of Genoa.

Having completed his thesis in 2009, Dr Pringle has since expanded his work into the field of geophysical flows while continuing his previous themes. This has led to joint collaboration with earth scientists and chemical engineers, looking to examine the behaviour of large bubbles rising through highly viscous fluids – both in simple and complex geometries.

Vision Statement

The problem of shear flow turbulence has been studied for well over a century, but still many questions remain about how it is structured and even how it is triggered. With the advance of computational power it has become increasingly possible to couple theoretical concepts with cutting edge numerical techniques to probe these problems and tease out the key elements.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
