Personal profile


Tom joined the University of Dundee as a Lecturer in Environmental Fluid Mechanics in January 2020, following a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of British Columbia and MMath and PhD degrees at the University of Cambridge. He is an applied mathematician and fluid dynamicist whose research aims to distill important processes in fluid flow and in industrial processes to their key mechanistic description via mathematical modelling, simulation, and experiment.
Tom's particular areas of expertise are:
•    The dynamical systems interpretation of shear flows and drag reduction
•    Stratified shear flows and algorithmic identification of ocean mixing events
•    Compressible porous media and processes in the pulp and paper industry
He is also interested in reactive porous media such as sea-ice mushy layers, and the effect of stochastic pertubations on bifurcations in dynamical systems.
