About Me

I am a postgraduate research student in the Department of Computer Science. Currently, I am part of the High Performance and Scientific Computing (HPSC) research group, and I am supervised by Prof. Stephen Jarvis. Before starting my PhD I completed a Computer Science MEng here at Warwick, graduating with a first in July of 2016. In my free time I enjoy video games, reading, badminton, going to the gym, programming, and cooking.


My research is primarily on the optimisation of high performance scientific programs - specifically physics simulations that make use of the particle-in-cell (PIC) method. Currently I am focusing on the implementation of higher order methods within PIC codes, and improving their performance. It is hoped that these methods will offer improved solution accuracy while having a relatively minor impact on overall application runtime.
