Returning to in-person experiences in February: Visit the COVID-19 website for more information.
My research offers possibilities for students with a variety of interests including very theoretically minded students, including those with interests on the Pure Mathematics side of the Applied Math spectrum, numerically/computationally oriented students and students with very applied scientific interests. Work can involve developing new theoretical models and/or numerical models, running large computational fluid dynamics models to address scientific questions, data analysis and the interpretation of numerical model results with physical/mathematical models.
In addition to the specific projects listed below I am interested in supervising students with interests in nonlinear waves. In the realm of fluid mechanics I also have general interests in stratified flows and large scale physical oceanography (e.g., eddies). If you have an interest in one of these areas or others in fluid mechanics, and you are interested in pursuing graduate studies in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Waterloo please get in touch by email at kglamb@uwaterloo.ca.
Unfortunately I do not have funding for a post-doctoral fellow at this time. If you have your own source of support and are interested in working with me please get in touch.
High resolution numerical studies of physical processes in lakes including eddies, upwelling and waves and their connection to hypoxia. Interested students should have a background in fluid mechanics and strong mathematical and computational/programming skills. They should also have an interest in multi-disciplinary research. The University of Waterloo has a Water Institute and interested students will have the option of participating in the institute’s Collaborative Water Program.
More details of my research interests are provided here. Research interests of other faculty in the Environmental and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Group can be found on their web pages.
Both Canadian and international students are encouraged to apply. All accepted students will be provided with sufficient funding to cover tuition and living expenses.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
