I am deputy director of the
Manchester Centre for Nonlinear Dynamics (MCND). The MCND is an
initiative taken by the University of Manchester to promote
interdisciplinary research of nonlinear systems. The centre is formed
by researchers from within the Department of Mathematics and the
Department of Physics and Astronomy. Research within the MCND group
is based upon the application of a combined approach of theoretical
modelling, computation and detailed quantitative experimental
investigations of nonlinear phenomena. The MCND laboratories are
housed within the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Current MCND
research covers a broad range of systems, including problems in fluid
mechanics, granular flow, optics and liquid crystals.
I collaborate with
Sebastian Noelle and
have visited him as part of the Priority Research Programme
Analysis and Numerics for Conservation Laws".
I also have ongoing research links with the German Research Council's
SFB298 on "Deformation and failure of metallic and granular structures"
at Darmstadt Technical University in Germany.
In August 2002 I organized a very succesful LMS sponsored workshop on
"Particle Size Segregation, Mixing and Pattern Formation in Granular Materials" .
A full workshop programme, list of participants and details of the meeting can be
found by following the adjacent link.
