Interests

My career has involved the application of mathematics to industrial problems concerning either fluid dynamics and/or chemical engineering, and in particular:

  • electrohydrodynamics
  • low Reynolds number hydrodynamics
  • complex fluids
  • electrical double layers, streaming potential
  • flow in porous media
  • multiphase flow
