I am a PhD student in the Centre for Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics, working on methods (primarily numerical) for the modelling of oscillatory stiffness in differential equations, at the moment mostly asymptotic parallel-in-time (APinT) techniques, under the supervision of Prof. Beth Wingate and Prof. Peter Ashwin.

The goal of this research is to incorporate certain developments from the nonlinear theory of partial differential equations into numerical analysis and improve the speed of simulations of multiscale systems displaying oscillatory behaviour at certain scales, with particular attention to methods which may be implemented on novel (e.g. heterogeneous) computing architectures. In the case of practical geophysical fluid dynamics simulations (such as those employed for weather prediction) where computation time is a serious consideration in discretisation, an improvement in speed may be translated into an improvement in accuracy.

I hold a BEng in Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering from the Memorial University of Newfoundland and an MSc in Mathematical Modelling (Hons.) from the University of Limerick. I have previously held positions at the Maritime Research Institute of the Netherlands and Oceânica Offshore.

I currently live in Exeter with my partner Magdalena, who owns and operates the Way hay! creative consultancy. When not doing mathematics, I enjoy running, cooking, and photography.
