Congratulations to Dr Zhi Ng on the conferral of his PhD today. Zhi's PhD advanced our understanding of bluff body wakes and their stability.
We congratulate Dr Tzekih Tsai on the conferral of his PhD. Tzekih's PhD made new discoveries in the stability of non-rotating and rotating horizontal convection.
Our latest research into magnetohydrodynamic duct flows reveals the path from three-dimensional optimal disturbances (as shown) to two-dimensional structures aligned with the magnetic field.
