My personal web page with all details can be found here.

My background is in (applied) mathematics, but I specialise in the field of fluid mechanics. More specifically, the stability of fluid flows and asymptotic/computational methods. I am particularly interested in:  (i) geophysically or industrially relevant flows , (ii) boundary layers and (iii) exact reductions of the Navier-Stokes equations and their role in 'real' geometries.

Keywords: rotating, stratified, particle-laden, exact solution, high-speed flow, vortex, jet, plume, spin-up, suspensions, bifurcation, hydrodynamic, stability.
