Welcome to my web page
I am Lecturer in Chemical Engineering in the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh. 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.
With my recently won ERC Starting Grant "SIRIUS" I will develop new numerical methods for inertial microfluidics for healthcare applications.
You can follow me on ResearchGate or Twitter.
I am looking for a PhD student who will work on blood flow modelling in the human placenta. Funding is available for a UK/EU student. More details (including application procedure) is available at Precision Medicine DTP. The application deadline is 8 April 2019.
Upcoming conferences, workshops and visits
You will find me at the following events.
CECAM workshop "Active, Charged, and Magnetic Soft Matter Simulations with ESPResSo", Stuttgart, Germany
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:
- Basics of hydrodynamics and kinetic theory
- Numerical methods for fluids
- The lattice Boltzmann equation
- Analysis of the lattice Boltzmann equation
- Boundary and initial conditions
- Non-dimensionalisation and choice of simulation parameters
- Lattice Boltzmann for advection-diffusion problems
- Multiphase and multicomponent flows
- MRT and TRT collision operators
- Boundary conditions for fluid-structure interaction
- Sound waves
- Implementation of lattice Boltzmann simulations
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:
- Classical mechanics including relativistic mechanics
- Quantum mechanics
- Thermodynamics and statistical physics
