General

I am a lecturer in the Applied Mathematics department of the School of Mathematics at the University of Southampton. From 2004 to 2005 I was a PPARC research fellow based here at Southampton.

Prior to arriving at Southampton I was a postdoctoral researcher in the numerical relativity group at the Albert Einstein Institut in Potsdam. My PhD is from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Dr. John Stewart.

Research interests

My primary interests are numerical simulations of Einstein's equations coupled to hydrodynamic matter. I am one of the authors of the Whisky code which is used within the EU Network. I also contribute to the binary black hole simulations of the AEI Numerical Relativity group.

I am also interested in mesh refinement codes such as Carpet.
