If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Eileen Nugent.

Many micro-organisms such as bacteria and algae swim in fluid environments. This swimming behaviour can interact with fluid motions to generate transport which differs both from that experienced by passive tracers in flow and micro-swimmers in the absence of flow. Examples will include a mechanistic model for helical gravitactic phytoplankton and a model for slender bacteria which undergo run-and-tumble chemotaxis in a channel.
