Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in the Applied and Computational Mathematics group based in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University. Prior to that, I spent time as a Research Fellow at the University of Exeter in both the Astrophysics group in Physics and the Centre for Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluids group in Mathematics. I obtained my PhD in Applied Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. Steve Tobias at the University of Leeds.
My research interests lie in the mathematical modelling of problems in fluid dynamics and MHD often motivated by those problems with applications to astrophysical contexts. I am interested in the interaction of convection with rotation, magnetic field and stratification, and the implication of these interactions for stellar and planetary interiors. Some key issues that interest me include understanding how large-scale flows are driven, how large-scale magnetic fields (like the ones observed in many astrophysical bodies) are generated through dynamo action and also how convective heat transport is influenced by rotation and magnetic field.
