Personal profile

Research interests

Before my current position with the University of Bath, I was a lecturer with the Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling (InFoMM) group at the University of Oxford. I was a Darby Fellow at Lincoln College from 2012-2016, and a research associate and lecturer (2010-2012) joint between Princeton University's Program in Computational and Applied Mathematics (PACM) and the Complex Fluids Group of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

I completed my doctorate as a Clarendon scholar from 2007-2010 with the Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and as a graduate student with Balliol College. Before that, I did my undergraduate and Master's degrees in Canada. I grew up in Ottawa, Ontario.

My research is motivated by a range of physical applications in fluid and solid mechanics, from classical hydrodynamics and wave-structure interactions, to thin film flow and elastocapillary systems. My primary area of expertise concerns the study of problems that involve a breakdown of traditional techniques in perturbation theory. Many of these problems involve the study of nonlinear differential equations and require the development of specialized methodologies and techniques, such as exponential asymptotics or asymptotics beyond-all-orders.
