I am an applied mathematician in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham. I have been here since September 2003, having previously spent eight years at the University of Birmingham and five years working for Schlumberger Cambridge Research studying problems related to the oil industry.
I have a wide range of research interests and will have a go at modelling anything, as long as it's either interesting or profitable, preferably both! I currently jointly supervise four PhD students: Sam Leworthy who is modelling self-healing roads, Zak Crowson who works on models for lubrication of cutting and grinding tools, David Cha, who studies pulsed laser ablation, all in collaboration with colleagues in the School of Engineering, and Jonathan Marsh, who is studying CVD manufacture of industrial diamond. If you're interested in studying for a PhD under my supervision, please get in touch. You can also read my CV or list of publications/ORCID Record, but if you want to find out more you'll just have to talk to me!
