Dr Lucy Auton

Stipendiary Lecturer in Mathematics

Lucy graduated with a 1st class MMath degree from Oriel college in 2014. She went on to complete her PhD in Civil Engineering also at Oriel college in May 2019. Her thesis, entitled ‘Large Fluid-Driven Deformations of Porous Annuli: Solutions Via Chebyshev Spectral Collocation’, comprises mathematical modelling of porous solids deforming due to fluid-flow and solutions via both analytical and numerical methods. She is currently a post doctoral research assistant in both the Mathematical Institute and Engineering Science. Her research has moved onto filters and involves collaborating with IIT Kharagpur, with the aim of helping to improve filter design to remove arsenic and fluoride from drinking water in rural India.
