I am a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Applied Mathematics in the School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester. I am working with William Parnell and David Abrahams at the University of Manchester, in collaboration with Thales UK. My work focuses on wave propagation in periodic structures and the effect of nonlinear prestress on the band structure.

Research Interests
