I am a post-doc working with Prof. Nico Gray and Dr. Chris Johnson for investigating granular flows using mathematical modelling, laboratory experiments and numerical simulations. Small-scale laboratory experiments show very similar behaviour to large scale geophysical mass flows such as avalanches, landslides and pyroclastic flows. In particular we are interested in phenomena where solid-like and liquid-like regions coexist. I am also a member of the Manchester Centre for Nonlinear Dynamics , an interdisciplinary research group combining theoretical, numerical and small-scale experimental investigations, which has laboratories in the School of Physics & Astronomy.
