Dr Jim Wicks
Managing Director

Jim has a PhD in Physics (Clarendon Laboratory & Lincoln College, Oxford); is a former Research Fellow at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge; University College London (UCL) and the Dept of Materials in Oxford. He has an extensive background in multiphase simulation and founded The Fluid Group in 2005. He has focussed extensively on the combination of simulation techniques: ASM (activated sludge modelling) with fluid mechanics, solids transport in magnetic fields, or plasma physics with liquid modelling. He works regularly in the areas of industrial mixing and separation, fluid structure and water resource recovery (water treatment and disinfection), is a current member of the EPSRC Associate College and a founding member of the CFD Working Group for the IWA (International Water Association).
