Emily graduated from Keele University with a BSc in Mathematics, and from the University of Oxford with an MSc in Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing. She then moved the the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, where she is currently studying for a PhD in the Dynamics of Downdrafts on an iCASE award with the MET Office. She is studying the effect of the initial conditions of a finite dense release on the fall, impact, axisymmetric gravity current and impact with other gravity currents originating from raised sources.
David did his MSc in Mathematics at the University of Bristol and his MSc in Aeronautics at Imperial College London. He then moved to the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, where he is currently studying for a PhD in Natural Ventilation. He is studying vertically distributed buoyancy sources and the resulting stratification that evolves within a ventilated environment on an iCASE award with Arup.
Maksim did his MEng Mechanical Engineering degree at the Department of Engineering, University of Warwick. He then received Gates Cambridge Scholarship and is currently pursuing his PhD at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge. Maksim has research interests in experimental fluid mechanics that span stratified flows, buoyancy-driven flows and ice melting. As part of his PhD, Maksim will be performing laboratory experiments to study the effect of turbulence on the physical processes involved in the melting of ice.
