Chris obtained his doctorate in nuclear engineering from Imperial and then went on to work as a post-doctoral research associate for five years. In this time, Chris worked in the production of research codes designed to simulate the behaviour of nuclear systems including nuclear power plants. He also supervised a number of PhD students.

Now, Chris works as a Teaching Fellow in the Graduate School, teaching postgraduate students research computing. He aims to provide teaching which is informative, engaging and well-suited to preparing students for the production of their own research codes.
