Research Interests

  • the dynamics of explosive volcanic systems: both subsurface and atmospheric processes associated with such volcanism, and the related topic of two phase flow in pipelines
  • geothermal systems, especially superheated systems, in which there is continual water- vapour phase change, and fluid-mineral dissolution
  • natural ventilation flows in buildings, work which has recently led to the energy saving e-stack system, as well as new strategies for combining thermal mass with natural ventilation, to achieve both comfort and energy efficiency
  • models of traffic flow dynamics
  • oil-water-gas flows in porous rocks and problems asssociated with residual oil recovery
