Edward Hall


Edward studied for a BSc and MSc in Mathematics at the University of Bath, before completing a PhD in Numerical Analysis at the University of Leicester in 2007, where he researched error estimation and anisotropic mesh refinement techniques for discontinuous Galerkin methods. A postdoc at the University of Nottingham followed, incorporating work on both incompressible/compressible fluid flows and the Boltzmann Neutron Transport Equation. In 2009 he was appointed as a temporary lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Nottingham, where he stayed until joining the Dept. of Engineering at the University of Leicester, in the role of Technical Project Manager for AeroTraNet 2 in September 2013.
