Overview

I am a PhD student in the Hydro-environmental research centre based in the Engineering Department. I investigate rheologically complex fluids in a multiphase medium using computational techniques like the finite element method. I take particular focus on gas bubbles rising in viscoelastic fluids and the phenomenological behaviour associated with them.
