Jordan Pitt

Postdoctoral Fellow

I am currently a post doctoral fellow at ANU. My main research interest is the development and study of robust numerical methods for solving partial differential equations. This broad topic lays at the intersection between the theory underpinning partial differential equations, computer science and numerical analysis and is applicable to a great number of problems in the simulation of real world phenomena. I have a particular interest in modelling water and fluids more generally. 

I completed my BSc (Hons) at ANU in 2014 and went on to complete my PhD at ANU in 2019. The topic of my thesis was the "Simulation of Rapidly Varying and Dry Bed Flow using the Serre Equations Solved by a Finite Element Volume Method", supervised by Professor Stephen Roberts and Dr Chris Zoppou. The main focus of the thesis was the development and validation of the numerical method for solving the Serre equations which are a set of partial differential equations that describe the behavior of water waves.
