Personal profile

Personal Statement

I work with Dr Victorita Dolean as a research associate in scientific computing of wave scattering problems and applications.

Previously I completed my doctorate under Prof Andy Wathen in collaboration with the US Army Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory where I worked on scalable two-phase flow solvers, in particular focusing on preconditioning for variable coefficient Navier–Stokes equations.



You can find me at these upcoming events:

  • CIRM Workshop on Parallel Solution Methods for Systems Arising from PDEs — 16 Sept to 20 Sept 2019  Marseille
  • Scottish Numerical Methods Network 2019 Workshop on Iterative Methods for Partial Differential Equations — 27 Sept 2019 — University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
  • ENUMATH 2019 — 30 Sept to 4 Oct 2019  Egmond aan Zee, The Netherlands
  • DD26  2 Dec to 6 Dec 2019  Hong Kong

or else feel free to drop me an email if you are interested in my work.
