  • I'm interested in fluids that don't behave like the standard (air, water, honey) Newtonian model. This has led me to study particles suspended in a viscous fluid (for example, with my student Thomas Brickell below); polymeric liquids (for instance, with my first Ph.D. student Sally Everitt); and instabilities in elastic liquids. The instabilities work has included two postdocs working on industrially relevant materials, and an ongoing collaboration with Suzanne Fielding at Durham on shear-banding instabilities.
