Current Co-workers

Dr Abhishek Kumar

is a research associate working on mixed convection in a confined domain. He is studying the transition between regimes by means of linear stability and DNS based on the spectral elements methods.

Dr Brahim Moudjed

Is a Research associate working on the transition to turbulence in Couette flows, on a two-year project.

Sanjay Singh

Is doing a PhD on the transition to turbulence in particulate pipe flows, with Chris Pringle and Alban Pothérat. Sanjay is building a rig where he will observe fluid-particle interaction by means of optical methods.

Jon Brons

Is doing a PhD on the turbulence in the presence of background rotation, Alban Pothérat and Peter Thomas (University of Warwick). Jon conducts experiments on a setup akin to FLOWCUBE, where turbluence is being driven by fluid jets interacting in the background rotation of Warwick University's large rotating table. Jon is seeking to characterise how rotation determines the dimensionality of rotating turbulence and how in turn, this topological feature affects energy transfers.

Anthony Rouquier

Is doing a PhD on the transition to turbulence in particulate pipe flows, with Chris Pringle and Alban Pothérat. Anthony is using linear and nonlinear stability theory and several models for the fluid-particle interaction to discover the different regimes attained by the flow during this transition. His work is sponsored by the National Engineering Laboratory for four years.

Ian Bates

Is an Engineer supporting the design development and operation of our experimental platforms. Ian's expertise includes, but is not limited to, CAD, mechanical engineering, electronics, flow measurement techniques.

Martin Holdsworth

Is an Engineer supporting the design development and operation of our experimental platforms. Martin's expertise includes, but is not limited to electronics, systems automation, mechanical construction and design.

Past Co-workers

Dr Nathaniel Baker

Did a PhD on turbulence in liquid metals. The project was initially funded by a 3-year Coventry University studentship, in Collaboration with the Grenoble High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Grenoble INP. He continued as a Research associate before taking up a position at ONERA in Paris.

Dr Kélig Aujogue

Did his PhD on the experimental simulation of magnetoconvection in the Earth Tangent cylinder, funded by a 3.5 year Research Grant from the Leverhulme Trust, in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science, Bengalore (India).

Dr Kacper Kornet

worked from 2011 to 2015 on the development of numerical spectral methods based on the least dissipative modes for the simulation of wall bounded MHD flows. The project was be funded by a Research Grant from the Leverhulme Trust. Kacper is now at DAMTP in Cambridge.

Dr Lintao Zhang

Simulated numerically the MHD flow in a bend, in view of applications to the design of heat exchangers. His work was jointly funded by a China collaborative fellowship from Coventry University and by the Chinese Scholar Council. Lintao is now a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Swansea, where is he modeling manufacturing processes in metallurgy.

Dr Vincent Dousset

did his PhD between 2005 and 2009 on the numerical simulation of MHD and non-MHD flows past 2D and 3D obstacles, using the finite volume method with and without wall functions (funded by the University of Coventry). [dp11, dp10, dp08]. He went on, as a post-doctoral researcher, to conducts experiments on electrically driven liquid metal MHD flows in a cubic container [prcd13_epje] (funded by the DFG), and now works for ABB.

Dr Rico Klein

did his PhD between 11/2004 and 10/2010 on the experimental characterisation of the transition between two and three-dimensional MHD flows at low Magnetic Reynolds Number [kp14_jfm, kp10, kpa09]. The project was funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. Rico is now working for Bosch.

Dr Vitali Dymkou

was working as a post-doctoral researcher on the numerical simulation of MHD turbulence based on the least dissipative modes, derived from the spectral analysis from the linear part of the Navier-Stokes equations [pdy09, dyp09]. The project was funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft from 2006 to 2009.

Dr Oleg Andreev

Worked as a post-doctoral researcher between 2007 and 2008. He developed a numerical and an experimental model to analyse the electromagnetic control of a liquid metal free surface during the LASER welding or LASER cladding processes [apt10]. This 1 year post-doctoral project was funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, in the frame of a "Schwerpunksprogramm" between 2007 and 2008. Oleg is now conducting experimental research on MHD flows at the Forchungzentrum Rossendorf.
