Biography

Dr Janis Priede’s (JP) research concerns theoretical and numerical analysis of liquid-metal magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and the associated electromagnetic and hydrodynamic stability problems. JP obtained his PhD in 1993 from the Institute of Physics (Latvia), where he studied the flows of conducting liquids driven by rotating magnetic field. Next five years he spent at the Research Centre Dresden-Rossendorf (FZD), Germany, working as a research fellow together with Dr. Gunter Gerbeth on the stability of Marangoni convection and electromagnetic levitation melting. In 1998 JP returned to the Institute of Physics, University of Latvia, where he worked as a senior researcher until 2006.

During this period he continued to collaborate with the FZD and developed a theory of electrodynamic instabilities describing the origin of rotations and oscillations of electromagnetically levitated bodies at sufficiently high AC frequencies of magnetic field. In 2006 JP moved to Coventry University, where he took up the post of Reader in Applied mathematics. His current research interests include the magnetorotational instability, which is sought to be responsible for the faster-than-expected formation of stars and whole galaxies in the accretion discs, development of contactless electromagnetic flow meters, and stability analysis of flows of liquid metals in strong magnetic fields.

Research Interests

Applications ; Magnetohydrodynamics ; Heat and mass transfer ; Boundary integral methods ; Free surface instabilities ; Electromagnetic velocimetry ; Computational electrodynamics ; Magnetorotational instability ; Electromagnetic levitation melting ; Asymptotic boundary layer solutions ; Electromagnetic processing of materials; Solute segregation in converging flows ; Electromagnetic levitation instabilities ; Stability of thermocapillary and buoyant convection

Vision Statement

My vision is to try to find original solutions to both theoretical and applied problems by developing new and more efficient methods that have a lasting value of their own.
