Sam Patrick

Institution King's College London
About Sam Patrick (KCL) works on wave-scattering and wave-vortex interactions in a variety of condensed matter and analogue systems. During his PhD at the University of Nottingham, he was involved in the first experimental detection of superradiance and light-ring oscillations around a classical rotating black hole analogue. Since then, he has worked as a theorist on black hole phenomena in classical and quantum fluids, black holes in inflationary cosmologies and vortex stability in superfluids. Sam's goal is to gain a better understanding of complicated many-body quantum systems, like superfluid helium, using ideas originating in gravity as inspiration.
