Over the last 20 years, Professor Frédéric Dias (UCD School of Mathematical Sciences, UCD CASL and UCD Earth Institute) has been at the forefront of research on water waves.

Professor Dias is an applied mathematician with a PhD in Civil Engineering who has made numerous pioneering contributions that have significantly advanced the field of fluid dynamics. His research contributions have spanned the fields of mathematics, mechanics, physics and civil engineering, and he is widely recognised as an expert in nonlinear wave motion. A key element of his success is his ability to work at the interface of mathematics and engineering, a rare combination in this research field.

He has directed numerous research projects among which the most recent are available through this web portal.
