Personal profile

Academic Background

Daniel Netherwood is an applied mathematician, working as a postgraduate researcher under the supervision of Dr Robert Whittaker and Dr Paul Hammerton. Daniels research interests lie in the field of biological fluid dynamics, with a primary focus on using applied and asymptotic methods to model collapsible tube flows readily observed within the cardiovascular system. In his current work, Daniel is working on developing a model for blood flow within an initially axially uniform elastic-vessel with arbitrary cross-sectional shape. 

Current publications: 'A new solution on the deformations of an initially elliptical elastic-walled tube' - Netherwood & Whittaker (2022, submitted). 'The influence of higher-order azimuthal modes on a theoretical model of the Starling resistor' - Netherwood & Whittaker (2022, in prep) .

Daniel is currently the organisor of the MTH-ENG  postgraduate research seminar series.

Daniel has been involved in teaching many of the modules that form part of the standard undergraduate degree program at the University of East Anglia. Examples include inviscid fluid mechanics, multivariable calculus, mechanics, mathematical modelling, analysis, mathematics for scientists (A,B and C) and mathematical techniques. 

Daniel has regularly been involved with, created, and run a number of outreach projects within the mathematics and engineering departments. Examples of some new projects: 'MTH-ENG mystery box challenge', 'Fluid mechanics; a trilogy of experiments', 'Optimising the construction of a lecture theatre'. 'How to vaccinate 77 million people?'.
