Dr Timothy Dodwell is a Prize Fellow in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bath, working at the dynamic interface between engineering, applied mathematics and high performance scientific computing. He has 9 international journal papers (with a further 5 submitted) and 11 conference proceedings, which span his research interests in modelling complex materials for industry-motivated problems. He has four on going projects totalling £743k (£248k as PI) in multiscale modelling and optimisation of composite manufacturing processes and performance, non-local continuum models for crack propagation and uncertainty quantification in material performance and sub-surface flow applications. He supervises five industrially sponsored PhD students and one post doctoral researcher across these research areas. <--   download a short CV including publications here   -->
