Claire joined the University of Lincoln in 2019 as an 1851 Research Fellow.
Claire graduated with an MMath degree in Mathematics from the University of Leeds in 2011. She stayed at Leeds to complete her PhD in Applied Mathematics, specialising in complex flows of complex fluids for inkjet printing applications. In 2015, Claire moved to Georgetown University, Washington, DC, for a two-year post-doc in the Institute for Soft Matter Synthesis and Metrology. In 2017, Claire was awarded an independent research fellowship, funded by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, to investigate semi-crystalline polymer materials in additive manufacturing at the University of Nottingham.
Claire’s research interests are in the field of non-Newtonian fluid mechanics, such as particulate suspensions, polymer solutions and melts, and centres around applying models of complex materials to industrial flow problems (including inkjet printing, wire-coating, metrology and additive manufacturing).
