Summary

 

Summary

My research focuses on modelling and numerical methods for energy systems. My PhD was centred around the modelling of LiFePO4, a battery chemistry that can undergo a phase change during charge/discharge. Solving the large, coupled systems of nonlinear PDEs that result requires the use of appropriate discretisation methods (such as finite volume) along with parallel, Newton-Krylov schemes.

 

My postdoctoral position at Imperial is based on the ongoing research in the AMCG on applying parallel Krylov schemes with multigrid preconditioners to solve large-scale multi-physics problems.
