Bryn Davies is a Research Associate in the Applied Mathematics & Mathematical Physics Section of the Department of Mathematics. His research concerns the analysis of wave propagation in complex media. He uses integral methods, homogenization and asymptotic techniques to study problems from the fields of topological insulators, subwavelength waveguides, enhanced sensing and bio-inspired metamaterials.

Before moving to Imperial College, Bryn was based at ETH Zurich where he worked in the group of Prof. Habib Ammari.

UK Metamaterials Network

Bryn acts as co-lead of the Modelling and AI-Design special interest group of the UK Metamaterials Network.
