I am interested generally in mathematical modelling of real-world systems, and primarily in fluid mechanics. My work involves a combination of asymptotics and numerical methods.
In my PhD, I am studying the production of thin glass sheets via the redraw process in collaboration with Schott AG. In the redraw process, a prefabricated sheet of glass is reheated and stretched to a desired thickness. This stretching can lead to undesired effects, such as non-uniform thickness and out-of-plane deformations. Our aim is to understand why these effects occur using mathematical models, and hence propose methods for resolving these issues.
