Dr Andrew Folkard

Senior Lecturer

I am an environmental fluid dynamicist, with research interests focussed primarily in eco-hydrodynamics: the ways in which currents, waves and turbulent mixing processes affect, and are affected by, ecological phenomena from plankton to macrophytes. Within this area I am particularly interested in the effects of heterogeneity (landscape patterning) on the hydrodynamics and ecology of surface waterbodies, especially those where density stratification is important.
