The BP Institute is a research institute of the University of Cambridge, which focuses on fluid dynamics and surface chemistry. We have members from  across multiple disciplines, including Chemistry, Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mathematics and Earth Sciences.

Research software is essential to our scientific output, and our newly appointed EPSRC Research Software Engineering Fellow, Dr Chris Richardson, will work closely with the University Research Computing division, lead by Dr Filippo Spiga. Dr Richardson is part of an ongoing international project for expressive finite element analysis (www.fenicsproject.org).
