Career overview

I received my DPhil for research in Numerical Analysis from the University of Durham, UK, in 2005, then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Universities of Strathclyde, Cambridge, and Oxford, where I developed my expertise in the Mathematics of Solids. I have been on the faculty of the School of Mathematics at Cardiff University since 2011, and a Senior Lecturer (equivalent to Associate Professor) in Applied Mathematics since 2016.
