Dr Nathalie Vriend is a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow in the DAMTP , Cambridge. She received her PhD from CalTech in 2010 for her work on the phenomenon of Booming Sand Dunes. Her research focuses on granular flows such as snow avalanches and sand dunes. Despite their importance, granular materials remain poorly understood; due to the lack of a comprehensive physical description, mathematical tools and techniques are insufficient to fully predict their behavior at this time. Dr Vriend is an experimentalist, but she also employs numerical simulations to develop analytical models and to form a comprehensive picture of open research questions.
