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

My research interests are in the mathematical modelling of complex flow phenomena with applications in industrial and environmental fluid mechanics. In my research, I also seek inspiration and supporting evidence in the experimental observations of these physical phenomena.



  • 2020 -          :   Senior Lecturer (tenured Associate Professor), Department of Mathematics, University of Manchester
  • 2016 - 2020:     Lecturer (Assistant Professor), Department 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 Lectureship in the Applied Mathematics Group of the Department of Mathematics, University of Manchester, in September 2016. Before, I worked at the University of Cambridge as a post-doc with Prof. Stuart Dalziel in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), and Nevile Research Fellow in Applied Mathematics 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, supervised by Profs Colm Caulfield and Andy Woods. I also obtained a BSc and an MSc from the École polytechnique, Paris, and an MEng from the National University of Singapore.
