Luthais McCash is an Honorary Industrial Fellow at the Department of Mathematics, University of Leicester. His main area of research is within applied mathematics and mathematical modelling, particularly within industry. His main academic interests revolve around Fluid Flow Modelling;  Atmospheric Physics which in today's society, is key in preparing for climate change. He is an energy and climate change consultant, and highly recognised in industry as an expert within this field.

From an industrial perspective, his current consultancy involves analysis of stochastic problems and providing strategic guidance based on meteorological data. His work seeks to understand random or stochastic processes, with particular reference to predictive and mathematical modelling within the energy sector. He is currently the Lead Scientist at a Scottish energy company, and has a background as an industrial consultant within aviation and energy modelling. He also aims to develop mathematical and computational solutions to industrial problems, in relation to fluid modelling and turbulence. He was recognised in industry for developing new mathematical models and methods in predictive forecasting.

His interests are broad but generally speaking, they deal with understanding fluid flow systems in both Physics and Engineering.

His academic interests relate broadly to fluid mechanics and applied mathematics in general.

Those interested in Luthais' work should email him directly to discuss projects.
