Juhel Uddin is working with Dr Ana Paula Palacios and I on stochastic modelling of infectious diseases.
Previous PhD students
I’ve had a team of very dedicated doctoral students:

I’ve been very lucky to work with three excellent research supervisors. Prof. Tim Phillips introduced me to lattice Boltzmann and supervised my PhD at Cardiff University, Prof. Helen Wilson guided me through my first post-doc project where I worked on instabilities in polymer processing at UCL, and Prof. Paul Dellar is one of the leading experts in lattice Boltzmann and taught me a great deal about the method when I worked with him at Oxford.
