Hayder Salman is a member of the Quantum Fluids group in DAMTP. He is an applied mathematician whose primary research interests are in nonlinear waves, non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, and turbulence with applications to Bose-Einstein condensates and superfluids. His other research interests include chaotic advection with applications to transport and mixing, and stochastic dynamic prediction.
