From 2013-2017 I studied for an Integrated Masters of Mathematics degree at the University of East Anglia (UEA). Whilst at UEA I undertook several modules closely linked to fluid dynamics including: oceanography, slow viscous flow, theory of water waves and many more. For my third year project I looked at leapfrogging vortex rings. My fourth year project looked at the contour dynamics of axisymmetric vortex rings. These two projects gave me my first look at research and from then I knew it was an area I wanted to pursue.
Vortex dynamics is an area which has particularly interested me since I started my undergraduate degree at UEA. While at UEA I was introduced to a wide range of other topics and this showed me the vast areas in which fluid dynamics can reach and I am currently open to researching in many areas.
The CDT at Leeds is a great way to partake in a multidisciplinary PhD program. From a mathematics background my work was all theoretical, and from this I had not gained any lab experience. Since starting at the CDT I have been introduced to a wide range of measurement techniques used in the lab and at the same time my numerical and theoretical skills have been reinforced. The CDT also offers a strong connection to industry and this was another very appealing factor in why I chose the CDT.
