Teaching Responsibilities 2020/21:

Terms 1+2: MA4K8 Maths-in-Action and MA4K9 Research Project

Term 1: TCC Course: Variational Analysis and Evolutionary Equations

Research Interests:
My research is centred around the mathematical analysis and the numerical analysis of partial differential equations with applications in mathematical biology, material science, continuum mechanics and phase transitions etc. Particular interests include PDEs in complex and evolving domains including manifolds, finite element methods, free boundary problems, geometric evolution equations and surface growth, inverse problems, cell motility, biomembranes and PDE optimisation.
