I joined the University of Manchester in 2016 as a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics, and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2019. Before starting this lectureship, I was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Manchester and at Imperial College London.

My research interests are focused around free-surface problems in fluid mechanics (e.g. drops, bubbles and films). I am interested in mathematical modelling, computations, asymptotic methods, feedback control, nonlinear dynamics, and collaborations with experimentallists. I am an active member of the Manchester Centre for Nonlinear Dynamics.


PhD in Applied Mathematics, University of Nottingham, 2012.

Part III Mathematics, University of Cambridge, 2007.

BA Mathematics, University of Cambridge, 2006.
