Fourth year Applied Mathematics PhD Student, working on phenomenological models of ECG rhythms and application to treatment of cardiac arrithymia, supervised by Prof. John Terry. My fourth year is being completed part time, as I have taken up a part time lecturing / teaching position in the university's mathematics department, resulting in a 50/50 split. I am based at RILD building with the EPSRC Centre for Predictive Modelling in Healthcare (www.exeter.ac.uk/pmh) and the Wellcome Trust funded Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis (www.exeter.ac.uk/cbma).
I completed my B.Sc. in Mathematics at the University of Portsmouth with 1st class honours in 2012, with a 1st class standard dissertation titled 'Chaotic Motion Revealed by the Poincare Section', supervised by Dr. Thomas Waters. From there I moved to Oxford Brookes at completed a one year long M.Sc. by Research programme in Applied Mathematics, studying the behaviour of Lotka-Volterra Type Competition models in Ecology using Bifurcation Theory. The final title of the project, supervised by Dr. Cristiana Sebu, was 'Bifurcation and Chaos Theory in Ecological Modelling using Dynamical Systems'.
The current project goal is to use mathematical modelling techniques to guide the treatment of atrial fibrillation via radiofrequency ablation techniques by developing a computationally effecient model of the interaction between ablated tissue and ectopic focii in the pulmonary veins consistent with clinical data. This model can be used to reconstruct signals missing in the operating theatre due to poor contact, and minimise the impact on surgical outcome caused by this information loss. This work has been presented at BioDynamics 2015 and 2016, internationally at an invited talk at the University Hospital in Bordeaux, and we have a paper awaiting review in Frontiers. The 2016 poster was runner-up for the best poster prize.
At Oxford Brookes University I delivered tutorials for mechanical engineering students in mathematical methods. At Exeter I primarily teach first year mathematics courses ECM1709 (Programming) and ECM 1708 (Dynamics). I have also been involved with 1st year Calculus and Geometry, Advanced Calculus, and Probability and Discrete Mathematics, as well as 2nd year differential equations. This year I will also teach part of Mathematical Investigations. I have two teaching awards, Best Postgraduate Teacher for Mathematics and Computer Science in 2014 and 2015, and was runner up for the University award in 2015.
Out of university I train regularly in traditional martial arts, and am publicity officer for Exeter Lion Tekwondo. I also train gymnastics and have experience in Shaolin and Northern Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu.
