The Rarefied Gas Dynamics of Levitating Microdisks

This project will use vector spherical harmonics to solve problems in oscillatory fluid mechanics. Analytic methods will be used to derive solutions to the governing fluid equations to explicitly verify a proof in the literature based on symmetry arguments.

Matthew Walker

The University of Melbourne

Matthew is currently in his final year of his undergraduate degree at the University of Melbourne, majoring in pure maths. When he was a kid, Matt was obsessed with Avatar: The Last Airbender and always wanted to be a waterbender; now he’s doing research into fluid mechanics, which is close enough. Matt plans to continue his studies into masters focusing more on applied maths and mathematical physics.

Outside of his studies, Matt is an avid music listener and keen tennis player.
