Prof. Kevin LAMB
Transforming Africa with Fluid Mechanics
Prof. Lamb’s primary area of research is on nonlinear internal waves in the ocean and in lakes. This work uses both theoretical and computational methods. Other research interests include other types of nonlinear waves in both fluids and other physical systems such as nonlinear optics. I am also interested in many other aspects of fluid dynamics including hydrodynamic instabilities, large scale ocean circulation, and a variety of stratified flow phenomena.
Other areas include Nonlinear waves, internal gravity waves and surface water waves, hydrodynamic instabilities and mixing, physical oceanography and limnology, coupling of hydrodynamic and bio-geochemical processes in lakes and computational fluid dynamics.
Prof. Lamb has a doctorate from Princeton and has taught at AIMS Ghana.
