I am a postgraduate student at the Laboratory for Scientific Computing based at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. I have previously studied Mechanical Engineering at University College London where I worked on direct numerical simulations investigating vortex decay in ambient turbulence.
My research is aimed at using continuum methods alongside high-performance computing to study the physics of fluids containing non-colloidal particles. Complex fluids are used in a wide range of applications in the oil and gas industry and often possess non-Newtonian characteristics. I aim to use resolved continuum simulations to perform case studies to investigate suspension flows, including effects such as particle migration, effective rheology changes, sedimentation and bed formation.
