Summary of Education & Employment
February 2016 to present: Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at the University of Manchester
I am currently a lecturer in applied mathematics at the University of Manchester.
February 2014 - January 2016: Postdoctoral Research Associate at Imperial College London
I spent two years as a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London, where I am working with Prof. Demetrios Papageorgiou
on modelling control and patterning of thin-film flows.
November 2011 - January 2014: Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Manchester
I was a postdoctoral research associate in the School of Mathematics, University of Manchester for two years. I worked with Prof. Anne Juel
and Dr. Andrew Hazel
on the study of bubble propagation in partially occluded tubes and on ink morphology in micro-scale inkjet printing.
2007 - 2011: Ph.D. student at the University of Nottingham
I submitted my PhD thesis, entitled 'Surface-tension-driven coalescence' in October 2011. The aim of this work was to investigate the effect of a low density external fluid on predictions of toroidal bubble pinch-off during inviscid coalescence.
My PhD studies were at the University of Nottingham, and my principal supervisor was Prof. John Billingham
In 2010 I completed a six-month research internship at Airbus
in Bristol. The internship was supported and organised by the Industrial Mathematics KTN
. My research at Airbus was on the effects of surface coatings on water condensation and runoff in aircraft fuel tanks.
2006 - 2007: Part III Mathematics at the University of Cambridge
I was awarded the Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge with distinction. All of my examined courses were on fluid dynamics.
In the summer of 2006 I did a research project with John Lister
at DAMTP. This was concerned with a method of glass lens manufacture where blobs of molten glass are levitated on a cushion of air blown through a spherical mould. My task was to calculate axisymmetric static shapes for a such a setup using AUTO and to investigate the stability properties of such shapes.
2003 - 2006: Undergraduate student of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge
I was an undergraduate student in mathematics at Churchill College, University of Cambridge, and was awarded a BA in 2006.
