Elisabeth Bowman is a graduate and postdoctoral fellow of the University of Cambridge. Currently, she joined the University of Sheffield as part of the geotechnical engineering group. Elisabeth’s fundamental research interest lies in understanding the micro-mechanisms of geomaterials undergoing deformation, that lead to the behaviour that we observe at the macro-scale.

She will present some of her current research into the following topics:

  • Mechanisms behind the extraordinary spreading of large and catastrophic rock avalanches
  • Mechanics of the motion of debris flows with a view to better modelling of their runout behaviour
  • Behaviour of granular flows within geotechnical centrifuge physical model experiments161118-Seminario2
