My research is in the area of applied and computational mathematics at the interface with physical sciences and engineering disciplines. In particular, my research focus is on the rigorous mathematical modelling and numerical analysis of damage in structural and solid mechanics, including multiscale modelling, limit states analysis, and computational simulation for applications. Due to its economic impact, the development of robust and accurate methods to predict the appearances and progress of structural and material damage is of strategic importance and of long-term scientific interest. My work in this area is both theoretical and computational in nature and involves the integration of tools from several disciplines, including mathematics and mechanics of solids, modelling and analysis of transport processes in materials, numerical analysis and optimization of differential equations, and scientific computing.

Khulud Alayyash - Deformation and Collapse in Cellular Structures of Nonlinear Elastic Material, Joint supervision (with Prof. Tim Phillips) of DPhil in Mathematics, April 2013 - Present.
I hold a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Bucharest, Romania, a Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge, and a DPhil in Numerical Analysis from Durham University.
Currently I am a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at the Cardiff School of Mathematics, Cardiff University. Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and Strathclyde in Glasgow.
I am also involved in the Cardiff University Student Chapter of SIAM, further details of which can be found at the SIAM webpage, and also am involved in the organization of the Applied Mathematics seminar programme.
