Teaching Responsibilities 2019/20:

Term 2: MA3H0 Numerical Analysis and PDEs

I am a co-organiser (together with Tom Hudson) of Warwick's Applied Mathematics Seminar. Let us know if you have any suggestions for speakers!

Research Interests:
  • Applied mathematics, in particular socio-economical, life sciences or fluid dynamics applications
  • Inverse problems (parameter estimation and optimization)
  • Stabilisation and (optimal) control of PDEs

My current projects include (Bayesian) inverse problems in the context of pedestrian dynamics (see a Warwick press release from when I participated in the STEM for Britain competition) and the use of feedback controls to stabilise and control the solutions to various thin film flow models.

Here are links to my Google Scholar, ResearchGate and arXiv profiles.
