Prof. Peter Haynes, MA, PhD. Professor of Applied Mathematics. Fellow of the Royal Society.
My research focuses on the large-scale fluid dynamics of atmosphere and ocean, and related topics, particularly in climate science. In fluid dynamics I am interested in wave propagation and breaking and its implication for the background flow, and in transport and mixing of trace species, including reacting chemical and biological species. These topics are relevant to both atmosphere and ocean. In atmospheric science, I am interested in the dynamics of the global circulation, in interactions between dynamics, chemistry and radiation, and in the various physical and dynamical processes controlling the distributions of chemical species, including water vapour.
I was the Head of Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics for the period 2005-2015.
I am co-Convenor of the Cambridge Centre for Climate Science.
