I am a Senior Research Fellow working at the interface between Computer Science and Physics. I am currently a member of the Computer Science department and was previosuly a member of the Astrophysics group (see my astrophysics home page for more details of my previous work).

Research Interests

My current research interests relate to scientific computing on current and future High Performance Computing architectures. I am Exeter's co-lead on the GW4 Isambard system which provides a range of advanced architectures to enable performance comparisons and algorithm development for next generation hardware. More information about research computing at Exeter can be found on the research computing web pages.


As Co-Investigator:

  • NERC: NE/R008795/1 (PI: Colin Cotter, Imperial College), "Parallel Paradigms for Numerical Weather Prediction"
  • EPSRC:  EP/R029628/1 (PI: Beth Wingate, Exeter), "On the way to the asymptotic limit: mathematics of slow-fast coupling in PDEs"


I am module leader for the "High Performance Computing and Distributed Systems" module (ECM3426). This module is available in the third year the undergraduate Computer Science programme.
