Key details

Dr Catherine Tonry

Senior Lecturer in Computational Science and Engineering


Catherine Tonry joined the University of Greenwich as a PhD Student, completing her PhD in 2015. Prior to this she completed an MSc in Applied Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing, a PGCE in Secondary Science Education at the Institute of Education and a BSc in Physics at Imperial College.

Her time at Greenwich has been primarily research focused working on a wide range of projects, from the electrohydrodynamics of polymers to using computational engineering in the research of historic naval vessels.

She currently applies her extensive numerical modelling skills to the field of metallurgy, primarily in the ultrasonic treatment of metal alloys but also in the field of additive manufacturing.

She is also the course leader for Clouds, Grids and Virtualisation, where she teaches on parallel programming techniques.
