Lecturer

School of Mathematics

I am currently teaching a final year module, MA3303 - Theoretical and Computational Partial Differential Equations.

As a PhD student, I delivered tutorials to first year undergraduates in a wide range of topics, including Linear Algebra, Differential Equations and Mechanics.

My research interests are in theoretical and computational fluid dynamics, specifically, looking at the interation of small bodies of fluid with solid substrates. During my PhD I considered the motion of droplets over chemically treated surfaces with mass transfer effects, in which, simulating such situations typically require intensive computing resources and techniques. The aim of the project was to break down the equations of droplet spreading using asymptotic analysis to develop a new, simple, and yet accurate model to uncover and understand new phenomena while offering a highly attractive alternative to full scale supercomputer simulations.
