Main project: Numerical Modeling and Simulation of Sediment Mobilisation and Transport due to Turbulent Currents
Funding: UCL Assistant
Supervisor(s): Miltiadis Papalexandris

The proposed doctoral research evolves around two principal axes. The first one is the development of mathematical models and algorithms for flows of fluid-solid particles mixtures, i.e. granular suspensions. The second one is the use of these algorithms for the study of sediment mobilisation and transport due to turbulent currents.
