Welcome to my web page

I specialise in the modelling and simulation of complex fluids, for example emulsions, suspensions of deformable particles or red blood cells in microfluidic devices. I am also interested in the development of the lattice-Boltzmann method.
Please browse around and contact me if you have any questions or if you are looking for collaborations.
Why not follow me on ResearchGate or Twitter?


PhD positions

We have funding for a UK/EU student starting in 2017 on the project Smart therapeutics for high blood pressure in collaboration with the Centre for Cardiovascular Science.

We are also looking for a UK/EU or self-funded international student for the project Understanding multiscale multiphase reacting flow in porous media and their application in renewable energy industry in collaboration with Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.

Please contact me if you are interested and have any questions about eligibility and funding.

Scientists for EU

I am supporting Scientists for EU because I think that leaving the EU would be a disadvantage for science in the UK and in Europe.

Lattice Boltzmann textbook

We are proud to present our textbook "The Lattice Boltzmann Method - Principles and Practice" that will be published as a Graduate Text in Physics in October this year. The book covers the following topics:

  1. Basics of hydrodynamics and kinetic theory
  2. Numerical methods for fluids
  3. The lattice Boltzmann equation
  4. Analysis of the lattice Boltzmann equation
  5. Boundary and initial conditions
  6. Forces
  7. Non-dimensionalisation and choice of simulation parameters
  8. Lattice Boltzmann for advection-diffusion problems
  9. Multiphase and multicomponent flows
  10. MRT and TRT collision operators
  11. Boundary conditions for fluid-structure interaction
  12. Sound waves
  13. Implementation of lattice Boltzmann simulations

You find the book on several web pages, e.g. Springer or Amazon.

Textbook about Theoretical Physics

I am proud to present our textbook about theoretical physics "Theoretische Physik" for undergraduate students. The book has 1300 pages and is written in German. Together with five other authors, I worked for nearly three years from inception to publication. The book contains four main pillars:

  1. Classical mechanics including relativistic mechanics
  2. Electrodynamics
  3. Quantum mechanics
  4. Thermodynamics and statistical physics

You can order the book via Springer or Amazon.

Upcoming conferences, workshops and visits

You will find me at the following events. Get in touch if you want to meet up.
