About me

I am a Professor of Applied Mathematics in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham.

After my first degree, I studied for an MSc in mathematical modelling and numerical analysis, with a dissertation on the onset of chaos in a differential-delay equation supervised by Andrew Fowler. My PhD on solitary waves in discrete nonlinear systems was supervised by Chris Eilbeck, and following this, I did a brief Postdoctoral Research post with Oliver Penrose, Jack Carr and Denver Hall on the kinetics of micellar systems.

At Nottingham, I have continued research in the areas of nonlinear dynamical systems, particularly solitary waves on Hamiltonian lattices, and deterministic coagulation-fragmentation problems. I have also branched out into modelling biomedical/biochemical processes.

I have taught a variety of modules including Engineering Mathematics, Nonlinear Waves, Numerical Analysis, Vocational Mathematics, Differential Equations and Maple.
