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.

Available studentships

PhD studentships in mathematics

Funding information:
Each PhD studentship is fully-funded, including fees and a tax-free stipend, at UKRI studentship rates covered for the duration of 3 to 4 years for UK candidates. International candidates are welcome to apply but will need to cover the difference between the UK and overseas fees.

Quasi-modes and resonances in two-dimensional vortices with radial stratification

Funding information:
Full UK tuition fees and a tax-free stipend. This project is on offer in competition with a number of other projects for funding. This opportunity may be available with partial funding for overseas fees for exceptional applicants. However, funding for overseas students is limited and applicants are encouraged to find suitable funding themselves.

Our people

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 ...
