I am a third year PhD student under the supervision of Professor John Smillie. I am interested in dynamical systems, in particular, complex dynamics.
Previously I studied my MMath at the University of Liverpool and undertook two projects supervised by Professor Mary Rees. These projects concerned the dynamics of quadratic polynomials.
With Professor Smillie I have been studying complex dynamics in two dimensions. I am particularly interested in the visualisation of Julia sets of complex Hénon maps. The following GIF shows the type of images I have been producing in Mathematica. On the left is a SaddleDrop output due to Sarah Koch and the right shows the Mathematica output. More examples can be found here.
