Jason Laurie

Profile  

I joined the Mathematics Group at Aston University in March 2016, having spent three years as a Dean of Faculty Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. Prior to this, I spent two years at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon in France working as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant.

In the summer of 2006, I graduated from the University of Warwick with a MMath in Mathematics degree.  I subsequently stayed at the University of Warwick and obtained a PhD in Mathematics under the supervision of Prof Sergey Nazarenko on the topic of Wave Turbulence in 2010. 

  • MMath with First Class Honours in Mathematics, University of Warwick, 2006
  • PhD in Mathematics, University of Warwick, 2010 
  • 2016 – date: Lecturer in Mathematics, Mathematics Department, Aston University, UK.
  • 2012 – 2015: Dean of Faculty Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Department of Physics of Complex Systems, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel
  • 2010 – 2012: Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Laboratoire de Physique, École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France  

My main research interests lie in understanding the complex interactions between coherent structures and turbulent fluctuations in fluid flows. I mainly deal with flows in geophysical fluid dynamics (atmospheres and oceans) or those found in Bose-Einstein Condensates (BECs) or superfluid helium-4. I also have a keen interest in studying rare events within these systems.

For more details please visit my personal webpage.

 I am the module leader for the following courses:

  • AM10PB Probability (TP2)
  • AM20NM Numerical Methods (TP2)

 

If you would like to conduct a PhD in one of the following areas, please do not hesitate to contact me:

  • Geophysical fluid dynamics
  • Computation of rare events
  • Turbulence in BECs or superfluids
  • Wave turbulence
