I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Applied Mathematics, specialising in Fluid Mechanics, at the School of Mathematics, and a member of the Manchester Centre for Nonlinear Dynamics, University of Manchester.

My research interests cover a broad range of fascinating flow phenomena with applications in industrial and environmental fluid mechanics.



  • 2016 -          :     Lecturer (Assistant Professor), School of Mathematics, University of Manchester
  • 2013 - 2016:     Nevile Research Fellow, Magdalene College, Cambridge
  • 2012 - 2016:     Post-Doctoral Research Associate, DAMTP, University of Cambridge

I started my academic position in the Applied Mathematics Group of the School of Mathematics, University of Manchester, in September 2016. Before, I was at the University of Cambridge working as a post-doctoral researcher with Prof. Stuart Dalziel in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), and a Junior Research Fellow at Magdalene College, Cambridge. In 2012, I graduated for my PhD in Applied Mathematics at Churchill College, University of Cambridge. My PhD thesis was on the fluid mechanics of confined turbulent jets. I carried out my PhD research at the BP Institute and DAMTP with Profs Colm Caulfield and Andy Woods. In 2007-2008 I did a MEng at the National University of Singapore, with Prof. Chew Yong Tian and Dr Christopher Yap. In my Master thesis I studied a data-analysis technique called the Hilbert-Huang transform. Previously, I graduated from the École polytechnique in Paris, where I did a BSc and MSc between 2004 and 2007.
