Dr William
Lucas
HPC Applications Consultant

I work at EPCC as an HPC applications consultant, starting in May 2019. My background is in computational astrophysics, focusing on star formation and galactic dynamics, having completed my undergraduate degree, PhD and a postdoctoral position at the University of St Andrews. Nothing quite beats being able to make a nice movie at the end of a star formation simulation (even if the physics gone into it is nightmarishly inaccurate). My free time goes to landscape photography and slowly improving on flute and folk guitar when I have the energy, and reading and playing computer games when I don't.
