My research is in applied fluid dynamics and focuses on the viscous flow around immersed bodies, for example, the behaviour of the air around the sail of a yacht, and the water around the blade of a tidal turbine. I am particularly interested in those conditions where the nature of the onset flow is turbulent and the forces on the body are due to the formation of vortical flow structures.
