Stephen Wilson

Professor

Personal Statement

I have made contributions to the mathematical modelling and analysis of a wide range of problems in fluid mechanics, including thin-film flows, evaporating droplets, rivulets and dry-patches, dielectrophoresis, microfluidics, liquid crystals, non-Newtonian fluids (including viscoplastic fluids, thixotropic fluids and nanofluids), anti-surfactants and self-rewetting fluids, fluid-structure interaction problems, biomechanics, nucleate boiling, confined bubbles, thermocapillary (Marangoni) and thermoviscosity effects, spin coating, magnetohydrodynamics, and fluid impact problems.

The common theme running through all of my work is the use of a range of mathematical (namely asymptotic, analytical and numerical) methods to bring new insights into a wide range of "real world" problems ranging from boiling and evaporation through industrial coating processes to biological systems such as the human knee.
