Dr Ignazio Maria Viola is Senior Lecturer at the Institute for Energy Systems of the School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh. His research is in applied fluid dynamics and focuses on the viscous flow around immersed bodies. Examples of applications include the behaviour of the air around the sail of a yacht and the water around a tidal energy harvester. He is particularly interested in those conditions where the forces on the body are due to the formation of vortical flow structures.
