My research is in the broad area of applied nonlinear dynamics and incorporates both computation and analysis. Much of my work concerns fluid dynamics, but I also study simpler ordinary and partial differential equations. Recently I have been developing ways to use polynomial optimization to study dynamics, for instance to estimate time averages and other properties of attractors. A lecture for the public relating generally to some of my fluid dynamical research can be found here. I currently have funding for another PhD or MSc student to join my research group; a strong mathematical background and computational skills are required.
