I’m working with a team of very dedicated research students:
- Oleg Wagner is using LBM for large eddy simulations;
- Zainab Bu Sinnah is analysing LBMs (jointly with Dave Graham, Plymouth University);
- Norjan Jumaa is looking at multiphase flows with high density ratios (with Dave Graham, Plymouth University).
Before them I supervised some excellent students:
- Ivars Krastins (PhD, University of Greenwich, 2019): AParallel Lattice Boltzmann Method for Convection in Dendritic Solidification (with Andrew Kao and Koulis Pericleous)
- Seemaa Mohammed (PhD, Plymouth University, 2019): The lattice Boltzmann method for flows with slip and no-slip boundaries (in collaboration with Dave Graham);
- Ebtesam Alousta (PhD, Plymouth University, 2019): Fatigue crack closure. (Director of Studies was Colin Christopher);
- Andreas Hantsch (PhD, University of Freiberg, 2013): Lattice Boltzmann models for thermal multiphase flows; April 2011-December 2013. You can read more here;
- Rebecca Allen (PhD, KAUST, 2015): Modelling diffusion and buoyancy–driven convection with applications to geological CO2 storage; August 2012–July 2015
- Stuart Thompson (Summer Intern., University of Glasgow): Discrete kinetic modelling of the Freedericksz transition in liquid crystals; June–September 2012
- Mokhles Mnelja (visiting student, Tunisia), Lattice Boltzmann equation for non-ideal gasses, September–December 2009.
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.
