Dr Demosthenes Kivotides

Senior Lecturer

Chemical and Process Engineering

We are active in the general mathematical areas of Nonlinear, Statistical and Computational Physics (NSCP). We have previously published on a wide variety of topics: reacting fluids, superfluids, incompressible flows, plasmas, colloidal suspensions and polymer solutions. We constantly seek for opportunities to extend our research into new, exciting NSCP areas, in particular those that combine fundamental theoretical insights with great societal and economic impact.
