Personal profile

Research Interests

Experimental & Computational Fluid Dynamics:

I have an interest in fluid dynamics and its applications to Engineering applications.  I am particularly interested in laminar to turbulent transition, in particular boundary-layer receptivity and stability theory.  I have an interest in fluid structure interaction and flow control by means of compliant surfaces, roughness and MEMS.  My work is through experiment and numerical modelling (velocity-vorticity and other methods).  I have an interest in flow over flat plates, aerofoils and rotating disks.

Fluid Mechanics and Biological Applications

I have an interest in modelling flows through collapsible tubes and arteries, particular with the aim of understanding the flow physics and development of assitive devices.   This work is of a fundamental scientific and practical nature.

Compartmental Modelling

Modelling cell growth of cancer cells using pk-pD models.

Teaching & Learning

I have an interest in teaching pedagogy and students attitudes to learning towards Mathematics and Engineering.
