The College congratulates Dr Colm-cille Caulfield, who has been promoted to a Professorship in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics.
Dr Caulfield is a Fellow and College Lecturer in Mathematics at Churchill. He holds a joint appointment in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and the BP Institute.
Dr Caulfield is interested in fluid flows where density variations play a critical dynamical role. His research strives to use a combination of mathematical modelling, numerical simulation and laboratory experimentation to understand and quantify fundamental physical processes, particularly when they are transient in nature.
Dr Caulfield’s appointment will take effect from 1 October 2015.
