Speaker: Dr Megan Davies Wykes

Theme: Science and technology

Sash windows are a common sight in the UK and are often the only source of ventilation in our homes. These windows can be very effective sources of ventilation, if used correctly. In this talk I will explain the science behind sash windows and how to use them effectively.


Dr Davies Wykes is the Liz Acton Lecturer at the Department of Engineering and Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge. Megan works on problems in environmental fluid mechanics, with applications ranging from building ventilation, air pollution, splash from vehicles, and mixing in the oceans. She was previously a Fulbright Scholar at New York University, where she studied microscale swimmers.
