Teaching Responsibilities 2023/24:

Term 1: MA4L0 Advanced Topics in Fluids

Research Interests:

I am an applied mathematician with interests in modelling physical and industrial problems using PDEs, continuum mechanics, and the asymptotic analysis of PDEs. I work on problems including heat and mass transfer, electromagnetism, fluid flow, chemical reactions and phase changes, with applications to cleaning and decontamination, filtration, soil science, and metallurgy. I am particularly interested in free-boundary problems, and using asymptotic analysis to study multi-scale problems.
