David Nigro

About me:

I am a final year PhD student in Applied Mathematics at the University of Manchester. More specifically I am working in the field of hydroacoustics, studying the noise generated by turbulent water flows over moving objects. I am particularly interested in towed array cables sonar self noise as well as in the noise generated by turbulent eddies convected past the trailing edge of the blades of an underwater propulsor.
