Professor Dominic Vella

Professor and Tutorial Fellow in Applied Mathematics

I am a Tutorial Fellow in Mathematics (more specifically Applied Mathematics); I focus on teaching the Physical Applied Maths courses in the 1st and 2nd years at Lincoln. I am also the Website Fellow.

My research focuses on continuum mechanics in general and the interaction of the surface tension of liquids with elastic objects in particular. In an earlier life I worked on small objects floating at liquid surfaces understanding when dense objects (like a paperclip) can float on the surface of a liquid and how impact can jeopardize this. Currently, my research focuses on how surface tension can cause thin elastic objects to wrinkle and how this wrinkling should be described mathematically.

Within Lincoln I tutor 1st and 2nd year students for the Physical Applied Mathematics courses.
