and Postgraduate Students
(B.Sc. Physics, U. of Cagliari, Italy)
Giovanni has recently completed a PhD with S.R. Bishop
on the subject of synchronisation of coupled chaotic systems and has now
moved to a post-doc at the U. of Maryland.
(MScIndustrial Economics, Norwegian Inst. Tech., MSc, UCL)
Sakse attended the MSc in 1995-96
and has just completed a PhD with J.
Stark on developing time-series methods for spatio-temporal systems.
He currently works for Barclays.
Senior Research Fellow
Kostas has a CEng, Dipl. Eng (NTU Athens) and PhD (Strathclyde) in naval
architecture. Whilst at the Centre he worked on ship stability in waves
on an EC (HCM) Fellowship.
Frederique is a mathematical biologist who visited the centre for
the 1998-99 academic year on a French fellowship to work with J.
Stark on the control
of ovulation. She has now returned to a permanent research position
in France but continues to collaborate with Jaroslav.
Ricardo has a degree in physics from the Universidad Nacional Autonoma
de Mexico, and a PhD in applied maths from Queen Mary and Westfield College,
London. He has recently finished a project on the reconstruction and prediction
time series with J.
Stark and moved to a research fellowship at Simon Fraser University
Mathematics, Univ Nac Auton de Mexico)
Alexandra has just completed a PhD with J.
Stark on applications of nonlinear dynamics to biology
and the death of cells. She is now a research fellow at the Pacific Institute
for the Mathematical Sciences, University of British Columbia.
(BEng, Civil Engineering, UCL)
David has recently complete a PhD with S.R. Bishop
on the discontinous dynamics of oscillators which impact against stops.
Rua graduated from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, in 1994
with first-class Honours in Mathematics and obtained his PhD from Cambridge
before joining the teaching staff of the Centre as a temporary replacement
for J. Stark
during the tenure of his Royal Society Leverhume Trust Senior Research
Fellowship. His research interests include ergodic theory, numerical calculation
of invariant measures and markov chain models of dynamical systems. He
has now moved to a research fellowship in Canada.
Royal Society Research Fellow
Mike graduated with a First in engineering at Cambridge, and was awarded
his Ph.D. in the Centre in 1993. His fellowship allowed him to
develop his phase-space reconstruction techniques of time
series analysis. He has recently taken up a lectureship in signal
processing at King's College London..
Carlo has an MSc in physics from the University of Auckland and recently
completed his PhD in applied mathematics at Cambridge. Whilst at UCL he
workied on shell vibrations with Prof. Michael Thompson, and with Allan
McRobie in the Engineering Department at Cambridge. He has now moved
to a post-doctoral position at the University of Pittsburgh, via a short
stay at the University of Surrey.
Foale Research Assistant
Stephen was awarded a PhD in the Centre in 1993, and then worked
on modal interactions in shell vibrations on an EPSRC grant. He worked
for a year at Smith System Engineering, and is now a computer consultant.
Chastell (B.Sc., Mathematics & Computing, Exeter)
Paul is writing up his thesis on quasiperiodically
forced maps, and is currently employed at EDS Unigraphics in Cambridge.
Ellis (B.Sc., Theoretical Physics, Kent)
Matthew is writing up his thesis on large
scale ocean circulation, and is employed by Racal Research.
Lin Xu (M.Sc., Engineering Mechanics, Dalian, China)
After completing his Ph.D. on controlling
and utilizing chaos at UCL, Dao Lin has moved to National University
of Singapore as a Research Fellow.
Campbell Research Fellow
Kevin has a B.Sc. in maths from Bristol and has submitted a Ph.D. thesis
on spatio-temporal chaos at Warwick. His research with the Centre was
on chaotic forcing, using inertial manifolds and ideas from ergodic theory.
Kevin is now working for a film company.
de Souza Research Assistant
After completing his Ph.D. on ship
capsize at UCL, Jesse worked on heave-roll coupling, supported by
the DRA. He has now returned to Sao Paolo where he is Professor in the
Department of Naval Architecture at the Escola Politecnica da USP.
Popov Research Fellow
Atanas has degrees in structural engineering and applied mathematics and
a PhD in Applied Mechanics from Bulgaria. He has now moved to DAMPT in
Centre for Nonlinear Dynamics and its Applications,
University College London, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT, UK.
