Professor Ian P Castro is Emeritus Professor of Fluid Dynamics within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton. 

He maintains his research interests in turbulent flows of industrial and environmental significance. In particular, he studies the nature of rough-wall boundary layers, particularly those features similar to the lower parts of the atmospheric boundary layer over urban regions, bluff body aerodynamics, and the characteristics of strongly stratified wind flows over mountain topography.
