Dr Stephen M. Longshaw

Principal Computational Scientist, Daresbury Laboratory

Stephen obtained his PhD in Computer Science from The University of Manchester in 2011 with a thesis that looked at geological modelling of fault line evolution. Since then he has worked as a consultant for a number of UK based businesses and was a Research Associate within the school of Mechanical, Aerospace & Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester. During this posting he studied the application of GPU based Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) to modelling fluid simulation problems. Stephen is now a member of STFC at their Daresbury labs, working as a Research Fellow (Computational Scientist), with the goal of coupling macroscopic and microscopic solvers and developing distributable software to that end.
