Nonlinear Waves and Geometric Fluid Dynamics Group

Our group uses mathematical techniques such as asymptotic methods, reduced model analysis and numerical modelling to investigate fluid flows. We also use more geometric techniques such as geometric mechanics along with other geometries including differential, symplectic, Kähler, algebraic and discrete in order to describe various features of different flow systems.

Dr Matthew Turner

Head of the Nonlinear Waves and Geometric Fluid Dynamics Group

I obtained an MMath degree at the UEA in 2002 before completing my PhD in Fluid Dynamics in 2006, also at the UEA, under the supervision of Dr Paul Hammerton. After this, I spent 3 years at the University of Exeter working with Prof. Andrew Gilbert, before moving to the Sir Harry Ricardo Laboratories at the University of Brighton, where I ...
