Summary

My research interests are in numerical methods and fluid dynamics.

I am a research associate in the Mathematics of Planet Earth group, where I am investigating parallel-in-time methods for numerical weather prediction with Professor Colin Cotter. These methods can enable higher resolution atmospheric modelling by leveraging the massive parallelism of modern supercomputers. To achieve this, we are using Firedrake, a framework for finite element simulations. This work is funded by the Met Office through the ExCALIBUR project.

I am also finishing my DPhil in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. For this project, I have been investigating the behaviour of finite volume and finite difference numerical methods for low Mach number flow, as well as looking at the effect that thermal boundary conditions have on turbulent heat transfer predictions in high resolution fluid simulations.
