About

As of 1st September 2017 I have been a lecturer in applied mathematics at Keele.

Prior to joining Keele I was a postdoctoral researcher working in DAMTP in Cambridge as part of the Mathematical Underpinnings of Stratified Turbulence (MUST project) working mainly with Colm Caulfield.

From October 2013 to October 2015 I was a postdoc in the School of Mathematical Sciences at University College Dublin working with Miguel Bustamante on nonlinear wave systems and singularities in inviscid flows. This was under the title “Genesis and Development of Extreme Events in Fluids” and funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI ).

From April 2012 to October 2013 I worked at the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol on an EPSRC funded study into periodic orbits as a basis for fluid turbulence working with Prof Rich Kerswell who has recently moved to DAMTP to take up the GI Taylor Chair in Fluid Mechanics.

I completed my PhD working in the Vortex Dynamics group at the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of St Andrews.

My PhD research with my supervisor David Dritschel included work on helically symmetric vortex equilibria (JFM 2009) and a new hybrid Eulerian-Lagrangian model for inviscid flows.

I am also a graduate of the University of Reading where I completed an MSc. entitled “Mathematical and Numerical Modelling of the Atmosphere and Oceans” jointly between the departments of Mathematics and Meteorology.
