UEA Autumn Inaugural Lectures

UEA Autumn Inaugural Lectures


In 1834, while conducting experiments to determine the most efficient design for canal boats, John Scott Russell discovered a phenomenon known in fluid dynamics as a solitary wave. This discovery sparked interest in researching additional nonlinear waves in fluids.

Join Prof Emilian Parau (School of Mathematics) as he explores recent discoveries of new waves in fluids that are covered by ice plates, generated by moving vehicles and airplanes on ice, those with surface tension and waves on ferrofluids.

Inaugural lectures recognise and celebrate the promotion of UEA academics to the position of professor, whilst giving audiences the chance to hear about their research and its impact on society. These lectures are free and open to all, and there's no need to book; simply turn up on the night, or watch live via YouTube. Each lecture is followed by a free drinks reception, with a chance to meet the speaker and ask them questions about their research.
