Speaker information

Dr Bryn Jones, University of Sheffield. Dr Jones' main research interest is in the feedback control of fluids. Fluid flows, such as the water surrounding a sailing vessel, or the air moving across a wind turbine, are ubiquitous in nature and so the ability to control them conveys significant benefits across a wide range of applications, including drag reduction, turbulence induced noise and fatigue attenuation, and even hurricane suppression. Other research interests include: control of spatially distrubuted systems; control of systems governed by differential-algebraic equations; numerical methods for large, sparse systems; applications to fluid flows; novel technologies for marine and polar science.
