Susanne Horn

Welcome! I am a Professor of Numerical and Mathematical Fluid Dynamics at the Centre for Fluid and Complex Systems (FCS) at Coventry University.
My research focuses on turbulent convection in planetary, geophysical and atmospheric contexts. In particular, I am interested in how rotation influences the flows occurring in planetary interiors and atmospheres, how magnetic fields are generated and how tornadoes are formed. For more information please have a look on the Research Topics page.
My project on "Non-Oberbeck-Boussinesq Effects in the Ultimate State of Rapidly Rotating Rayleigh-Bénard Convection" is supported by an EPSRC New Investigator Award.
My project on the "The Magnetohydrodynamics of Liquid Metal Tornadoes" (MAGNADO) was selected for funding as a Starting Grant by the ERC  and is now supported through the UKRI Horizon Europe Guarantee scheme.
