I am currently a Lecturer and EPSRC Early Career Fellow in the department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London. I am interested in the development of novel numerical methods and their application to solve hitherto intractable fluid flow problems in various areas of science and engineering. I am particularly interested in theoretical aspects of high-order numerical methods for unstructured grids, as well as their implementation for modern (many core) hardware platforms. Please see my research website for further details.
