I studied Aeronautical Engineering at Cambridge University, I’ve always really enjoyed fluid dynamics. I then worked in Formula 1 designing front wings before travelling and coming back to academia

Research Interests

I’d like to do a PhD which allows me to do something useful, which helps the world, such as climatology or other geophysical flows.

Why I chose the CDT in Fluid Dynamics

The cohort nature really appealed to me, having people you can work with as opposed to being on your own is a big advantage. I also really liked Leeds as a city, it’s not too expensive but there’s also a lot to do.
