Dr Jerome Neufeld is a Reader in Earth and Planetary Fluid Dynamics jointly appointed to the BP Institute, the Department of Earth Sciences and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge. The research in his group focuses on using mathematical models and laboratory experiments to understand the fluid dynamical behaviour of the Earth and other planetary bodies. Current research interests include the consequences of subglacial hydrology on supraglacial lake drainage and the tidal modulation of ice streams, the solidification of magma oceans and the early generation of magnetic fields on planetary bodies, the erosive dynamics of idealised river systems, the emplacement and solidification of magmatic flows, viscous tectonic mountain building, and the general fluid dynamics of geological carbon storage. Dr Neufeld has a PhD in geophysics from Yale University and a B.A.Sc. in Engineering Science (physics) from the University of Toronto, and is a Fellow in physics at St. Catharine's College, Cambridge.
