Women in Fluid Dynamics UK


This SIG supports the engagement, retention and progression of women in the fluid dynamics discipline in academia and industry. There is currently a substantial underrepresentation of women in fluid dynamics at all career stages, and this SIG will provide a space to network, raise the profile of women across the breadth of fluid dynamics, support career development, be a voice for the community and to funders, and ultimately be a platform to enhance wider aspects of diversity in fluid dynamics. The SIG is open to all who have an interest in furthering the development of women in fluids.
