Raymond Walsh

Raymond is a Research Scientist with Chelsea Avondale.

Raymond holds a PhD in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Simon Fraser University in Canada. His PhD thesis “Boussinesq dynamics at a cloud edge” developed a new theory that describes the geometrical evolution of cloud. From this model a particular wave-cloud interaction, known as an atmospheric wave duct, was identified resulting in a newly identified mechanism for wave propagation on the edge of cloud. The wave propagation was validated through a quantitive comparison with a numerical weather model.

Raymond has over seven years of experience working in the areas of mathematical fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), scientific computing, and mathematical analysis. His past work includes building fluid mechanical models of atmospheric cloud dynamics, utilizing numerical weather modelling and CFD software, validation against experiments, and the design of algorithms and numerical methods.

Raymond is a member of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, the Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society and the Canadian Mathematical Society.

In addition to his PhD, Raymond holds a Masters of Science in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Simon Fraser University in Canada, and a Bachelors of Science in Applied Mathematics and Physics from Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada.
