Bryn Davies is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow in the Applied Mathematics & Mathematical Physics Section of the Department of Mathematics. He is an applied analyst whose research establishes rigorous mathematical solutions for fundamental problems in wave physics. He uses techniques from the spectral theory, analysis of PDEs and asymptotic methods to study wave propagation in complex media and to inform the design of experimental setups. He has developed theory for applications including topological waveguides, high-contrast nano-particles, enhanced sensors and bio-inspired metamaterials. 

At Imperial College, Bryn works in the Waves group led by Prof. Richard Craster. 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.
