Dr Matthew Durey

  • Lecturer in Applied Mathematics (Mathematics)

Biography

I am currently a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics. Before coming to Glasgow, I was an Instructor in Applied Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Bath in 2018.

Research interests

I am an applied mathematician working on the theoretical modelling, analysis and simulation of physical and industrial systems. To identify and elucidate the fundamental mechanisms underpinning different phenomena, I develop first-principles models that can be systematically explored using a wide range of mathematical, computational and statistical techniques. I work closely with experimental researchers to ensure that the models address the key issues of each problem, iterating between theory and the laboratory to build a complete physical picture.

My research interests lie primarily at the intersections of fluid mechanics, collective dynamics, and applied dynamical systems. One of my long-standing interests is the field of pilot-wave hydrodynamics, in which a millimetric droplet bounces and self-propels across the surface of a vertically vibrating liquid bath. My research programme has since expanded to include nonlinear wave resonance, pattern formation, and problems arising in industry.
