Prof. Andrew Hogg
I am interested in the dynamics of fluid motion applied to geophysical and environmental situations, with a particular emphasis on two-phase flows. This includes sediment transport, gravity current and turbidity flows, erosion and avalanches of granular material. I try to develop mathematical models which capture the fundamental dynamics of the flows and which yield results that may be compared to experimental measurements and field observations.
I work in the Applied Mathematics & Numerical
Analysis Group (AMNAG) of the School of Mathematics,
University of Bristol. I am also involved in the Centre for
Environmental & Geophysical Flows (CEGF),
which is an interdisciplinary research centre involving
mathematicians, earth scientists, engineers and geographers.
I am always willing to discuss Ph.D. projects with potential students.
Currently I have research interests in environmental and geophysical
flows and experimental fluid mechanics. Some projects
are listed in the AMNAG Postgraduate booklet.
