My primary role currently lies with the University of Warwick as assistant professor in the Warwick Mathematics Institute as of September 2019. Please see my institutional homepage for the latest academic activity updates.
I have directed my investigative efforts as part of my role as Hooke Research Fellow within the Mathematical Institute (2017-2019) towards the study of interfacial flows and associated asymptotic methods for multi-scale systems, coupled with a strong interest in applied partial differential equations, computational fluid dynamics and high performance computing tools in general. The developed methodologies have been used to address technologically relevant problems in microfluidics, water retention on aircraft surfaces, spray atomisation and electrohydrodynamics. I am also active in a more general industrial mathematical modelling setting, with previous projects in computational acoustics (perfectly matched layers in particular), operational research and performance optimisation in flow-related devices (e.g. vacuum pumps, pesticide sprays). I often participate in Study Groups with Industry, as well as events within the UK Fluids Network as part of several Special Interest Groups.
During this period of the research fellowship I have also maintained an honorary research associate role as part of the Department of Mathematics in Imperial College London, with several co-supervision, research and outreach projects in the Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics section.
