Graeme Sarson

My current Timetable (Semester 2, 2018-19) of regular classes and meetings.


My research is largely on geophysical and astrophysical fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), but I also work on the mathematical modelling of prehistoric population dynamics.

Individual pages list my Publications and some recent Presentations.


I currently (2018-19) teach: All course material for these modules will be posted to Blackboard (registered student access only) at the appropriate time.

I currently co-supervise two PhD Students: Stephen Mason and Devika Tharakkal. Seven students I've supervised (or co-supervised) have completed PhDs: Alhashmi Darah (2006), Kate Davison (2008), Apichat Neamvonk (2009), David Ryan (2010), Fred Gent (2012), Kavita Gangal (2015) and James Hollins (2018).


I currently act as Degree Programme Director (DPD) for Mathematics & Statistics, Chair of the Board of Examiners for Physics, and as a Personal Tutor.
