I graduated from King’s College London in 2007 with an MSci (hons) in Mathematics and then went on to complete a Ph.D. from University College London in 2011 on the modelling of fluid flow and ductile fractures, in the course of which I was a co-recipient of the IChemE Frank Lees Medal for my collaborative work with the HSE on CO2 pipelines safety. I then took up a research associate followed by a Teaching Fellowship at the same institution, during which I participated in a number of projects sponsored by the EC, EPSRC, UKCCSRC and Industry. In December 2015 I joined the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Sheffield as a Lecturer.

My interests are varied, ranging from the mathematical modelling of transient multiphase flows, to uncertainty quantification to the development of fast, robust and accurate numerical techniques for process modelling.

  • modelling of multiphase flows
  • hazard modelling
  • uncertainty quantification
  • development of numerical techniques for PDEs
