About the Project
The PhD project will investigate three-dimensional fluid flows generated by corals and their physical/ecological consequences. Through an iterative approach involving mathematical modelling and experiments, the project will develop a mechanistic framework for understanding microscale biophysical processes at the coral surface. This will inform efforts in coral conservation and management and be broadly applicable to range of other problems in biology.
Throughout their candidature, the PhD student will work in an international cross-disciplinary research team, gaining a range of skills in fluid dynamics, continuum modelling, numerical analysis (including scientific computing), microfluidics, microscopy, and image processing. During their candidature, the student will spend at least 12 months at each of The Universities of Melbourne and Manchester, working with leading research groups in applied mathematics, fluid dynamics and coral biology.
