Danny Blundell

I graduated from Keele University in 2020 with a First class BSc in Mathematics and Physics, I then completed a Masters in Gravity, Particles and Fields at the University of Nottingham in 2022 both of which were cross disciplinary in nature covering a broad range of topics and the ability to approach them from the perspective of both a mathematician and physicist. 

Research Interests:
My research interests are quite broad however the real-world effects of fluid dynamics such as experimental and multiple its applications are of particular interest as these are aspects I missed during my MSc which (while intriguing) was more theoretical in nature. 

Why I chose the CDT in Fluid Dynamics:
My interest in fluid dynamics developed in at Keele during my physics 3rd year experimental project on the Magnus effect and the simultaneous Mathematics module on Fluid Mechanics. I chose the CDT at Leeds because it allowed me to further develop my understanding of Fluid Dynamics and explore multiple aspects and applications of it prior to selecting a topic for the PhD. As Leeds itself has numerous research themes utilising multi-disciplinary teams, I felt this was a perfect fit for me given my background while also allowing for a wide range of topics to choose from.
