Dr Cédric Beaume


I am a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at the University of Leeds. I completed my PhD in Fluid Dynamics from the University of Toulouse in 2012. I am the recipient a Geophysical Fluid Dynamics fellowship from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (2012) and held research positions in Physics at UC Berkeley (2012--2014) and in Computational Fluid Dynamics at Imperial College London (2014--2015) before joining Leeds.

Research interests

My work is mainly theoretical/numerical. I study dynamical systems, often with application to fluid dynamics. I am in particular interested in pattern formation in convection problems and shear flows, and in instabilities such as the long-standing problem of transition to turbulence.
