Fluid mechanics, especially of bubbles in liquids. The Fortran programming language.
MSc NZ, PhD ScD Camb, FRSNZ
John does research in fluid mechanics and its applications, especially on the movement of drops and bubbles, especially if their surfaces are contaminated. He used to teach fluid mechanics, calculus, complex analysis, and related topics.
His personal homepage gives suggestions on using the ITS Linux systems, Fortran (including the latest version of his notes on Fortran 95) and Maple (including SI units). It also lists those of his publications that do not appear below.
