About me

I am a third year PhD Candidate in the Department of Computer Science. I am supervised by Dr Gihan Mudalige, working as part of the cross-collaborative ASiMoV project, with Rolls-Royce and several other University partners.


My research focuses on coupling multi-physics codes together to form large computer simulations, and using tools to analyse and improve performance. Within this area, I have developed a small, lightweight 'proxy' coupler, to give insight as to the best way to configure large CFD simulations, and also developed a performance model to predict run-time. I have also been involved in testing emerging parallel programming methods within the scope of a proxy CFD application.
