Biography

I originally studied for a BSc in Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Reading between 2001 and 2004. After graduating, I decided that I wanted to specialise in Mathematics and stayed on at Reading gaining an MSc in `The Numerical Solution of Differential Equations’ in 2005 and a PhD in Applied Mathematics in 2009. My thesis was entitled ‘On topographical wave scattering in stratified fluids’ and was supervised by Dr. Peter Chamberlain.

After finally completing my studies, I obtained a post in the Automotive Engineering department at Cranfield University as a Research Fellow working on the ENCYCLOPAEDIC project. This project was a collaborative effort between Loughborough, Sheffield and Cranfield universities as well as various industrial partners including Aston Martin, Capricorn and BP Castrol to reduce friction losses and enhance the fuel efficiency of current internal combustion engines.

I was appointed to the post of Lecturer in Mathematics at Oxford Brookes University in March 2013 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in September 2015. Whilst working at Brookes, I became interested in Mathematical Biology and modelling the concentration of blood glucose during physical exercise in particular.

I joined LJMU in September 2017 as a Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics.
