Dr Megan Davies Wykes

Postdoctoral Researcher at Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), University of Cambridge


Megan researches experimental fluid dynamics. Her interests span turbulent stratified mixing and fluid-structure interactions.

Currently, she is a postdoc researcher for Managing Air for Green Inner Cities (MAGIC), examining the interaction between building ventilation systems and their surroundings, at the Department for Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge.

She was previously a Courant Instructor at the Applied Mathematics Laboratory, based in the Courant Institute, New York University, where she was also a Fulbright Scholar. There she investigated the interaction between a dissolving body and a buoyancy-driven flow and flow-structure interaction at the microscale. Her PhD was on turbulent stratified mixing and the Rayleigh-Taylor instability, supervised by Professor Stuart Dalziel.
