## Research interests

I am a postdoctoral research associate in the Numerical Analysis Group. My research interests lie mainly in numerical linear algebra and high performance computing. Specifically, I'm currently working with Professor Nick Higham on matrix functions.

Previously I was a Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate working in a collaboration between the numerical linear algebra group here at the university and NAG, a not-for-profit software company specialising in numerical software libraries.

I also currently organise the Manchester Numerical Analysis and High Performance Computing seminars.

## Teaching

This semester (Autmn 2014) I have been lecturing and running tutorials for the Linear Algebra part of MATH29681 for the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.Last year I did weekly tutorials for the following courses:

Nick Higham and I have produced a catalogue of matrix function software, which is available here. We will be updating it periodically.

I have written several blog posts for the NAG Blog, which might be of interest:

- The Matrix Square Root, Blocking and Parallelism
- Matrix Functions in Parallel
- How do I know I'm getting the right answer?
- Testing Matrix Function Algorithms Using Identities
