We tackle a wide variety of problems at the forefront of interdisciplinary applied mathematics and engineering science fundamentals. We focus on complex, multiphase systems, using cutting-edge analytical and computational tools to develop a generic fundamental understanding of systems for which there is currently no existing theory.

Each of these projects is overseen by Professor Serafim Kalliadasis. Listed below are other current and former group members and collaborators with expertise in these areas. These projects are currently ongoing and are funded by a variety of EPSRC, ERC and EU grants. Our publications page contains details of our contributions. You can also  read about some of our recent research highlights.
