Meurig Gallagher is a Teaching Fellow in Applied Mathematics. Meurig's research concerns the utilisation of numerical and analytical techniques to solve problems relating to fluid dynamics. His work to date spans several aspects of fluid behaviour, from free surface flows to the stability of non-Newtonian fluids, and has recently found interest in modelling behaviours of biological fluids.

Qualifications

PhD Applied Mathematics, University of Birmingham, 2015
MMath Applied Mathematics, University of Nottingham, 2011

Biography

Meurig graduated with an MMath from the University of Nottingham in 2011. He went on to complete a PhD at the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Prof. David Needham tackling the problem of "The initial development of a jet caused by fluid, body and free surface interaction". This project was funded by an EPSRC project grant.
 
Upon completion of his PhD, Meurig was granted a Teaching Fellowship at the University of Birmingham, where he currently works.
