Dr David Pritchard


Mathematics and Statistics

Personal statement

I am an applied mathematician with an interest in fluid dynamics, especially applied to the earth sciences. I have particular interests in non-Newtonian fluids, in flow in porous media, and in sediment transport in environmental flows.

For further information about my academic background and activities, please see my personal web pages at
