Why I chose the CDT in Fluid Dynamics

Fluid dynamics is a vast and complex area of study, from the smallest drop to the circulation of entire oceans; fluid dynamics can be used to describe the world around us. My undergraduate thesis sparked my interest in fluid dynamics and the CDT provided a perfect opportunity to gain a strong grounding in theoretical, numerical, computational and experimental fluid dynamics to then allow me to apply these skills to real world problems.
