Over the past 20 years, the Institute has become an internationally recognised centre of excellence in fluid mechanics and surface science, distinguished by our collaboration across subjects and the use of fundamental and new knowledge to inform a very wide range of problems with immediate relevance for the processes in the Earth, the environment or industry. The Institute is highly interdisciplinary, and we have many colleagues with whom we collaborate both in the University of Cambridge and more broadly with the UK and globally. For a more in-depth look at our research, each researchers’ publications are listed on their page.
