Ashleigh Hutchinson


Personal profile



I am an applied mathematician with a strong research focus on fluid mechanics problems rooted in nature and industry. I work with low-Reynolds number flows and non-Newtonian fluids.  I adopt a multidisciplinary approach to solving problems using a synergy between theoretical models, laboratory experiments, and numerical simulations.

My other research interests include using mathematical modelling to solve problems for industries such as finance, sugar, fishing, mining, and energy conservation.

I obtained my PhD from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg in 2016, where I also was employed as a lecturer for several years. Prior to taking up a lectureship at Manchester University, I was a Newton International Fellow based at Cambridge University.
