My research in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering focuses on advanced discretisation methods for geoscience applications. I am particularly interested in mesh adaptation, adjoint methods and automatic differentiation techniques. Much of my research is on the topic which brings these strands together most clearly: goal-oriented error estimation and mesh adaptation. Motivating applications include the accurate approximation of: the energy output of a tidal farm; the concentration of pollutant in a aquatic region of interest; and the inundation of a particular stretch of coastline by a tsunami.
I am a former MRes and PhD student on the Mathematics of Planet Earth Centre for Doctoral Training (MPE CDT) shared between Imperial College and the University of Reading.
