Andrew N. Edwards received a 1st class (hons) MMath degree in 2010 and a PhD in 2014 from the University of Manchester. Since then he was worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the School of Mathematics and Manchester Centre for Nonlinear Dynamics, apart from a period at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge in 2015. His research interests are focused around shallow granular flows and segregation effects, in particular those flows that propagate whilst exhibiting erosion and deposition of material from a substrate layer.
