Biographical details

John has recently joined the academic staff in the School as Professor of Fluid Mechanics and Director of the Wind, Waves and Water Centre. His undergraduate and PhD studies were at the University of Queensland, followed by post doctoral appointments at the University of WA. John’s subsequent academic appointments were at the University of WA, where he was head of the Department of Environmental Engineering, and James Cook University, where he was the foundation Head of the School of Engineering, a position which he held for 9 years. He has also held research positions in Canada, USA, UK and Germany. He is currently an Adjunct Professor at James Cook University.

Research interests

Professor John Patterson's research flows naturally from his philosophy of fluid mechanics: from the barely perceptible flows that vitalise our bodies to torrential floodwaters and howling winds, fluid mechanics is everywhere. Professor Patterson has been committed to this field since his undergraduate days, and is currently focusing on the extremely important issue of water quality.

"Not too much that happens around us isn't controlled by fluid mechanics. We breathe, our blood flows around our bodies, the wind blows around us, the air-conditioner blows on us - that's all fluid mechanics.

"Water quality is a big issue, in this country in particular, and my current research is looking at the mechanisms involved. If you think about the shallower, near-shore regions of a lake or reservoir, the sun shines on those parts and they get warmer relative to the deeper, interior parts. That's important, because most pollutants and other materials enter water bodies from the shore, and through fluid mechanics are then transported to the interior and affect overall water quality. In urban areas especially, there's a lot of run-off of fertilisers, sediment and stormwater, so if you're interested in water quality you need to know about the mechanisms that transfer these substances throughout the body of water and affect its overall quality.

"One of the reasons I'm passionate about this area is that fluid mechanics can be approached in several different ways - through theoretical or numerical work, fieldwork or experimental work - so it can be highly mathematical but also very practical. It's a mixture of great science and great usefulness.

"At the University of Sydney there are a lot of really good people, a good atmosphere and a good attitude to research. It's a really good place to work."
