SCHOLAR TALK 2022

We hosted our 2021-22 scholar Philip Winchester over Zoom to enlighten us about his research.

Topics of discussion:
• Why do we study fluids in the first place and what obstacles do current researchers face?
• What does Philip hope to achieve as he is coming to the end of his PhD?
• What industrial applications could result from Philip’s work?

We learnt that the complexity of fluid dynamics and its mathematics applies well into finance, software development, and other areas too.
