Summary

 

Overview

  • complex systems modelling
  • linear and nonlinear hydrodynamic stability
  • low-dimensional complexity in interfacial fluid mechanics, dissipative solitons and nonlinear waves in free-surface thin-film flows, coherent structures theory for dissipative solitons
  • perturbation methods, discrete and essential spectra of differential operators in unbounded domains, bifurcation and dynamical systems theory, centre/invariant manifold projection, stochastic processes, numerical analysis
  • micro-/multi-scale fluid mechanics, micro-/meso-scopic dynamics of moving contact lines
  • chaotic mixing in micro-drops, chemical reactions in chaotic flows
  • transport phenomena in advection/diffusion systems, wave-induced transport in multi-phase flow systems
  • hydrodynamic effects induced by chemical wave propagation and chaotic chemical dynamics
  • wave propagation in spatially distributed excitable media and nerve signal transmission
