About me

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at University College London and an OCIAM Visiting Fellow in the Oxford Mathematical Institute.

Research interests

My research concerns the mathematical study of wave propagation and its applications. My research is at the interfaces between rigorous applied and numerical analysis, asymptotic analysis and mathematical modelling.

My interests include:

Popular press

Workshops/conferences

Publications

Refereed journal publications

Refereed conference proceedings

Personal and professional development training

I take a keen interest in the personal and professional development of young researchers. I have delivered training on a number of Oxford MPLS Division courses including "Foundations for a Successful DPhil" (a one-day course for first-year DPhil students) and "GRAD Challenge" (a three-day course for 2nd/3rd year DPhil students). In collaboration with Alison Trinder from the Oxford MPLS Division I have delivered sessions in the Oxford Mathematical Institute "Fridays@4" series (click links for slides):

Previous positions

From 2013-2016 I was a Hooke Research Fellow in the Oxford Mathematical Institute and a Junior Research Fellow at The Queen's College, Oxford.

From 2010-2013 I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Reading, working in collaboration with Simon Chandler-Wilde and Steve Langdon on the EPSRC-funded grant "Boundary integral equation methods for high frequency scattering problems". The aim of the project was to develop novel numerical methods for solving high-frequency scattering problems based on a detailed understanding of the asymptotic behaviour of the scattered wave in the high-frequency limit. The project also involved collaboration with Andrea Moiola, Samuel Groth and Ashley Twigger at the University of Reading, Ivan Graham and Euan Spence at the University of Bath and Valery Smyshlyaev and Timo Betcke at University College London - for further details and recent work in this area see the Project Homepage, and the comprehensive review article published a few years ago in Acta Numerica.

My DPhil studies at the University of Oxford from 2006-2010 with John Ockendon and David Allwright concerned the modelling of sound propagation in urban environments, with a particular emphasis on high frequency propagation, and on the study of the inverse problem of source localisation, where the location of a sound source is to be determined from measurements of the sound field at various receivers distributed through the propagation domain. My DPhil was an Industrial CASE Award with Dstl.
