Dr Daria Frank
Diplom (Erlangen-Nürnberg) MASt PhD
Daria did her undergraduate studies in Mathematics at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg in Germany. In October 2009, she joined Fitzwilliam College to read Part III of the Mathematical Tripos. After finishing her diploma studies in Germany in December 2011, she returned to Cambridge to start her PhD in Fluid Dynamics at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and St Edmund’s College. After completeing her PhD studies in summer 2015, Daria took up a postdoctoral position in Environmental Fluid Dynamics at DAMTP. A year later in October 2016, she became a Junior Research Fellow at Fitzwilliam College. In October 2019, Daria moved on to Selwyn College as a Director of Studies in Mathematics. She joined Corpus Christi College as a Sultan Qaboos Early-Career Research Fellow and College Lecturer in Mathematics in September 2020.
Daria’s work focuses on buoyancy-driven and multiphase turbulent fluid flows and combines small-scale laboratory experiments with theoretical and numerical modelling. Her research interests address pressing societal issues such as the reduction of urban energy consumption and creating a healthy indoor environment by optimising the ventilation of buildings, mitigation of consequences of large-scale oil spills such as the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and, more recently, the risks associated with musical performances with regard to the COVID-19 virus.
