I worked for ten years in the RAF, as a communications technician. Whilst there, I completed a BEng (Hons) degree with the Open University, along with some Physics modules.

Research Interests

I am keeping an open mind about which area of fluids I want to go into. At the moment, I am very interested in the industrial applications of Fluid Dynamics, but this may well change as my experience grows.

Why I chose the CDT in Fluid Dynamics

One of the benefits of the CDT is the ability to see a wide range of applications and methods before picking an area to specialize in. The cohort nature of the school was a big draw for me, as teamwork was a big part of my previous career, and I see this as very beneficial. Coming from a non-education background, I also thought the CDT, with a year on the MSc before starting the PhD would be great experience.
