Dr Mastaneh Davis

School/Department: Computer Science & Mathematics
Position: Senior Lecturer


I obtained my PhD in Pure Mathematics in 1999 and at the same time I was working as Lecturer in Atilim University in Turkey. Later on, from 2002 to 2005 I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Kingston University, which was fully funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Federal waterways engineering and research institute (BAW) German. My postdoctoral work was directed in the fluid flow through porous media over surfaces. Modelling and simulating flow by using lattice Boltzmann method. From 2006 to 2008 I worked as a Senior Researcher on a project to develop a theoretical model that determines the particle segregation process in vibrated liquid fluidised beds. This project is supported by a grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Since 2008 I am working as a lecturer in the School of Mathematics.
