A simple example is often the best way to generate insight and understanding of complex systems
I am a Lecturer for the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute at the University of Southampton, UK. I have always been fascinated by mechanics and mathematics, and now I work on some of the most interesting and mathematically complex mechanics in the world: unsteady fluid dynamics and nonlinear fluid/structure interaction. My work is driven by questions like:
- What is the simplest possible fluid system that will generate a chaotic response?
- How are invertebrates like the octopus able to accelerate so quickly underwater (while we are so bad at it)?
- How can you make predictions for a system that is both poorly understood and expensive to test? By the way – this is the rule, not the exception!
