## About Me:

I am a PhD student in the MASDOC programme at Warwick. I am supervised by James Robinson and José Luis Rodrigo.

Before MASDOC I studied the MMaths course at Warwick with my final year project in super-fluid vortices using the GPE with Robert Kerr.

I am from Keston in Kent and my non-mathematical interests include: Ultimate Frisbee, Swimming and Movies.

## Mathematical Interests:

My mathematical interests are broadly centred around analysis focusing on harmonic analysis, regularity theory and PDE's. In particular I am interested in energy conservation of fluid equations.

## Papers:

From the MMaths project we have:

Rorai, C., Skipper, J., Kerr, R.M. and Sreenivasan, K.R. (2016) ‘Approach and separation of quantised vortices with balanced cores’, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 808, pp. 641–667. doi: 10.1017/jfm.2016.638. Paper

From the MASDOC program we have:

J. C. Robinson, J. L. Rodrigo, J. W. D. Skipper , 'A simple integral condition for energy conservation in the 3D Euler equations', Submitted, 2016 Preprint arXiv:1611.00181. Paper

## Projects:

I did a group project with fellow MASDOC students Matthew Eggingtion and Jamie Lukins on Model based emission control (MBEC). We produced a report, a postor, and a presentation.

For my Msc project I worked with my current supervisors and produce the following report. In the project we concentrated on understanding different equivalent definitions of Besov spaces in . We then applied these spaces to problems involving the heat equation and energy conservation of the incompressible Euler equations. Finally we considered how to define Besov spaces to bounded subsets of .

I have continued my results from the project which resulted in the paper above.

Recently I have been continuing my work developing more results on bounded domains and currently writing a paper on energy conservation of the incompressible Euler equations with boundaries that will be finished shortly.
