I am James Percival. I work in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering of Imperial College London, researching Computational Physics problems in fluids and porous media. My interests span the boundaries between applied mathematics, physics and engineering, as well as across geophysical and computational fluid dynamics.
I received my Ph.D in Meteorology and Mathematics from Reading University and a B.A. and CASM (Part III) in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge.
