Projects per year
My research interests lie in using applied mathematics to solve real-world problems. Rather than studying detailed models of a particular system, I consider simple, but physically founded, models with the aim elucidating the fundamental mechanisms that control phenomena such as the evolution of porous media as a result of reactive natural convection processes, and the behaviour of both isotropic and anisotropic fluids (liquid crystals) under the influence of an electric field.
Problems I have worked on include:
- Reative convection in an evolving porous layer
- High Rayleigh number convection in a porous medium
- Deformation of nearly hemipsherical and thin drops of isotropic fluid under the influence of an electric field
