Personal profile

Personal Statement

My research interests lie in using applied mathematics to solve real-world problems. Rather than studying detailed models of a particular system, I consider simple, but physically founded, models with the aim elucidating the fundamental mechanisms that control phenomena such as the evolution of porous media as a result of reactive natural convection processes, and the behaviour of both isotropic and anisotropic fluids (liquid crystals) under the influence of an electric field.  

Research Interests

Problems I have worked on include:

  • Reative convection in an evolving porous layer
  • High Rayleigh number convection in a porous medium 
  • Deformation of nearly hemipsherical and thin drops of isotropic fluid under the influence of an electric field
