Research: Professor Sherwin leads an active research group focusing on the development and application of parallel spectral/hp element techniques for solving partial differential equations using Nektar++. These methods are being applied to direct numerical simulation and stability analysis to a range of applications including vortex flows of relevance to offshore engineering and vehicle aerodynamics and biomedical problems associated with arterial atherosclerosis and atrial arrhythmias.
Other Activities: Currently Professor Sherwin is an associate director of EPSRC/EADS funded Laminar Flow Control Centre and Principal Investigator on the EPSRC funded Platform for Research In Simulation Methods. Professor Sherwin is also the academic lead to the Joint PhD programme with the University of São Paulo.
