Ph.D. Computational Fluid Dynamics, Heriot-Watt University, Scotland
Angus joined ACENET in 2022 with over 15 years of experience in modelling turbulent flow using both his own custom Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software and OpenFOAM. He began working with CFD during his Ph.D. studies, using Large Eddy Simulation to model wind and tidal turbines. After gaining his doctorate from Heriot-Watt in 2009, he worked as research fellow at Heriot-Watt and the University of Edinburgh, leading projects modelling wind farms and tidal turbines. More recently, he developed CFD models of the Grand Passage strait in Nova Scotia, running simulations on the UK supercomputing systems HECTOR and ARCHER. These projects involved industrial collaboration with companies such as TUV NEL, Scottish Power, and Vattenfall AB.
While specializing in CFD and scientific visualization, Angus has also extensively programmed in (and with) C, Fortran, Python, MPI, OpenMP and multigrid solver libraries such as PETSc.
