Fields of interest: Nonlinear dynamics & AMO physics
Rachel Fordyce's thesis project on a chaotic water wheel and the improvements on the setup made by Alison Saunders during the 2010 summer resulted in two articles that were recently published:
L. Illing, A. M. Saunders, and D. Hahs, Chaos, vol. 22, 013127 (2012) and L. Illing, R. F. Fordyce, A. M. Saunders, and R. Ormond, Am. J. Phys., vol. 80 (3), 192 (2012).
A scientific illustration from our paper is the front cover of Am. J. Phys., vol. 80 (3).
