I am interested in mathematical modelling of real-world systems, and primarily in fluid and solid mechanics. My work involves a combination of asymptotics and numerical methods.
I am currently studying dynamic wrinkling in elastic sheets - such as when an elastic sheet floating on the surface of a liquid is deformed with an indenter - together with Finn Box and Dominic Vella.
In my PhD, I studied the production of thin glass sheets via the redraw process in collaboration with Schott AG. In the redraw process, a prefabricated sheet of glass is reheated and stretched to a desired thickness. This stretching can lead to undesired effects, such as non-uniform thickness and out-of-plane deformations.
