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.
