Research Interests

My research interests lie in the application of continuum mechanics to physiological and industrial problems. In particular I am interested in problems involving interaction between a fluid flow and deformable interfaces, such as liquid-gas free surfaces and elastic solids.

My current research focuses on modelling the human brain, with a view to understanding the interaction between fluid (CSF) and solid (white, grey matter) phases during structural development and in the response to traumatic events such as injury or stroke. Previous physilogical projects have included consideration of fluid-structure interaction within other tissues in the body, including the lungs, heart and vocal folds.

I am also keenly interested in the dynamics of gas-liquid foams, with application to the production of high-porosity metallic solids (solid metal foams) as lightweight materials for use in the new generation of spacecraft.
