Dr. Sean Symon

Hello and welcome to the website! I am currently a lecturer at the University of Southampton in the AeroAstro Department. I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Melbourne with Simon Illingworth and Ivan Marusic and I completed my Ph.D. with Beverley McKeon at Caltech. I also had the opportunity to participate in GALCIT's dual masters exchange program with Ecole Polytechnique, where I worked with David Quéré on superhydrophobic surfaces. My goal is combine experimental data with numerical simulations, which are not full fidelity, to extract more information out of existing experimental techniques. We can then improve our ability to model and manipulate complex flows.
