Bioconvection; Biological Fluid Dynamics; Mathematical Ecology; Pattern formation. Martin Bees
I have several projects available. PhD students can choose to get involved in experiemental work in my wet laboratory.
Project 1) Hydrodynamic interactions of swimming micro-organisms: from individuals to suspensions
Project 2) Biodiesel from algae
Project 3) Porous media, micro-organisms and gas exchange
Project 4) Morphological characterization of spatial patterns in bioconvection using integral geometry
Project 5) Biological control of agricultural pests
Project 6) Chemically induced hydrodynamic instabilities
Project 7) Mathematical physiology
Project 8) The ecology of plankton patchiness and the impact of turbulence
A range of topics could be pursued, including dynamical-systems, stochastic and network models, of historical and contemporary (typically insurgent) conflict, and studies of the interplay between mathematical modelling and doctrine and organizational culture. MacKay has worked on mixed-force Lanchester models, dynamical models of insurgency, analysis of air combat data from the Battle of Britain, the US-Japanese Pacific air war and Korea, airpower theory and the development of RAF fighter doctrine, and naval war, both in the 'big gun' era and for the guided-missile age.
