Professor Michael Shelley, New York University, was the 2015 AMSI/ANZIAM Lecturer.

Lilian and George Lyttle Professor of Applied Mathematics
Professor of Mathematics, Neural Science, and Mechanical Engineering
Co-Director, Applied Mathematics Laboratory, The Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences

Professor Shelley’s research interests are in understanding complex phenomena arising in active matter, biophysics, and complex fluids, as well as in intricate fluid-structure problems that arise in understanding swimming and flying.

While his own research tools are mathematical modelling, analysis, and simulation, he collaborates very closely with experimentalists working in biology and physics. A large part of this collaboration happens in the Applied Mathematics Laboratory, of which he is a Co-Director and co-founder.
