Dr
Christopher Prior I am currently an
Addison-Wheeler fellow in the Mathematical
sciences department at Durham University. My general interests
lie in mathematical modelling and the mathematical issues on the
borderline between geometry and topology. I have a particular
interest in physical systems for which the conservation of topology
of inter-twined bundles or tubular structures is a key
consideration. This includes applications in elastic rod theory,
biopolymer modelling and magnetohydrodynamics (click the research
link for more details).
