Abstract: 
Motivated by modelling challenges arising in microfluidics and low-Reynolds-number swimming, we consider viscous flows in two-dimensional channels and present new transform methods for analysing such problems. The new methods provide a unified general approach to finding quasi-analytical solutions to a wide range of problems in low-Reynolds-number hydrodynamics and plane elasticity. In this talk, we focus on pressure-driven flows in channel geometries with linear expansions and angled transitions. This is joint work with Prof. Stefan G. Llewellyn Smith (UCSD).
