Bryn Davies is a Research Associate in the Applied Mathematics & Mathematical Physics Section of the Department of Mathematics. His research establishes rigorous mathematical solutions for fundamental problems in wave physics. He uses techniques from the analysis of PDEs, spectral theory and asymptotic methods to study wave propagation in complex media. He has developed theory for applications including topological waveguides, high-contrast nano-particles, enhanced sensors 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.
