Dr Mark Walkley
I began by studying for a BSc Engineering Mathematics in the Civil Engineering Department at Univeristy of Swansea. This was followed by an MSc in Computational Fluid Dynamics at Imperial College. I studied for a PhD in the School of Computing at University of Leeds. My thesis was on computational modelling of nonlinear, dispersive water waves in near-shore regions. Since then I have worked at Leeds on a range of applications of the finite element method to challenges in computational science and engineering.

- BSc Engineering Mathematics
- MSc Computational Fluid Dynamics
- PhD Computer Science
I have taught at every year of study on our taught programmes. My areas of teaching range from introductory programming to computer networks and parallel computing. Related to my research interests I have taught introductory and advanced scientific computing topics including adaptive and parallel algorithms. I have supervised projects in a wide range of topics in computer science, from client-focused software engineering projects delivering products to theoretical studies of parallel performance and accuracy of scientific simulations.
