I graduated from The University of Birmingham with an MSci in Theoretical Physics and Applied Mathematics. During the course I studied many modules relevant to fluid dynamics including; Continuum mechanics, viscous fluid mechanics and nonlinear waves. My final year project was on 'Squeeze flow of a viscoelastic fluid'.

Research Interests

I am currently open-minded to which area I will pursue during my research. I feel that the multidisciplinary nature of the CDT will allow me to experience a wide range of potential research areas before making a decision.

Why I chose the CDT in Fluid Dynamics

Coming from a mainly theoretical background I was keen for the opportunity to experience the experimental and computational study of fluid dynamics and develop skills in these new areas before undertaking a PhD. Also the chance to meet potential supervisors before deciding on a PhD project will be advantageous.
