Two new Royal Society University Research Fellows in DAMTP
Dr Ed Brambley and Dr Jerome Neufeld of DAMTP have both been awarded Royal Society University Research Fellowships in this year's competition. These Fellowships are highly competitive, with approximately 30 awarded each year, across all all areas of the life and physical sciences, including mathematics and engineering. The Fellowships are intended for outstanding scientists an early stage of their career who have the potential to become leaders in their field.
Dr Brambley, currently a Research Fellow of Gonville and Caius, works on mathematical models of wave propagation and instability, motivated by problems arising in the design of aircraft engines.
Dr Neufeld is currently a Research Fellow jointly funded by the Lloyd's Tercentenary Foundation and the Leverhulme Trust. He also holds a Fellowship at St Catharine's College. His research, which combines both theory and experiment, examines the fluid dynamics of multiphase geophysical systems, with a particular focus on the geological sequestration of carbon dioxide, and the solidification of sea ice and the Earth's inner core.
