Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics and Engineering Science fundamentals especially the interface between Mathematics and Engineering Science. Systems of interest cross the boundaries between Engineering Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Particular emphasis is given to:
- Mathematical-Theoretical Physics: complexity reduction and low-dimensional representation of complex multiscale systems; applied stochastic processes, multiscale analysis for stochastic PDEs; homogenization theory; phase transitions; statistical mechanics of inhomogeneous liquids and dynamic density-functional theory.
- Fluid Mechanics: micro- and multi-scale fluid mechanics, computational small-scale fluid dynamics; hydrodynamic stability, low-dimensional complexity and self-organisation in interfacial flows, dissipative solitons and nonlinear waves in free-surface thin-film flows; soft matter at interfaces and interfacial phenomena; viscoelastic and other complex fluids; chaotic mixing in micro-scale flows; flows in porous media; transport phenomena in advection/diffusion systems; wave-induced transport in multi-phase flow systems.
- Pattern Formation Driven by Coupled Hydrodynamic and Reaction-Diffusion Instabilities: fingering instabilities of reaction-diffusion fronts in porous media flows; dynamics of free-surface flows in the presence of chemical reactions, chemical reactions in chaotic flows; hydrodynamic effects induced by chemical wave propagation and chaotic chemical dynamics.
