Mr. Luke Collyer-Hoar

As part of my Mathematics Masters at Imperial College London, my thesis focussed on finding solutions to the Dirac equation in the presence of abelian BPS monopoles using the Nahm transform. I also undertook a project in which I attempted to find solitary waves in an inviscid fluid between two horizontal plates with an electric field passed between. At OIST I hope to develop my work on fluids and as such my first lab rotation in the “Complex Fluid and Flows” unit is concerned with producing a numerical simulation of a fluid between two elastic solid boundaries with a periodic pressure difference. In my spare time I enjoy reading history and philosophy, playing and watching football, and in general keeping active.
