Digital Dynamics is a consultancy run by Dr James Collett, based within the STRI. We undertake research and educational projects in physics and applied mathematics. A central interest in our work is the capture and analysis of digital images in a range of science applications. This includes high speed digital imaging, the use of wireless remote cameras and high-resolution video capture.

Dr James Collett is a Principal Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire. He took his PhD - studying the influence of circulation invariants on the evolution of galaxies - in 1995 at the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge. His current research interests include the dispersal of stars from disrupted galaxies and the physics of the hydraulic jump. He has a long-term interest in image creation and analysis and the use of narrative in science education, working alongside professional photographers, model designers and filmmakers on still and video projects.
