Developing and analysing mathematical models for industry, biology, energy and other sectors. I use a range of mathematical tools to gain practical insights into real world problems.

- evolutionary game theory
- spatial networks
From 2005 to 2008, I did my PhD at the Queensland University of Technology with Sean McElwain, working on mathematical models of dermal wound healing and other problems on the mechanics of tissue growth and repair.
From 2009 to 2016, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, initially working on models of dislocation pile-ups with John Ockendon and Jon Chapman and later holding an independent Hooke Research Fellowship. During this time, I broadened my interests in industrial and applied mathematics and became very involved in Mathematics in Industry Study Groups, week-long events where mathematicians work together on problems presented by people in industry. This collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to problem solving has always appealed to me, and my experience with Study Groups cemented my eagerness to keep seeking out and working on new problems in new areas.
In 2017 and 2018, I was a Lecturer at the University of Limerick, working in MACSI, a research group with a strong focus on collaborative industrial mathematics.
In 2019, I joined the Department of Engineering Mathematics at the University of Bristol as a Lecturer in Mathematical and Data Modelling. In this role, both my research and my teaching revolve around practical applied mathematics. My research involves working with nonmathematicians and my teaching involves training Engineering Maths students in practical skills for collaborative interdisciplinary mathematics.
I have broad research interests in mathematical modelling, model analysis, and physical applied mathematics. I am always interested in working on new industrial or interdisciplinary problems; previous collaborations have involved modelling medical devices, industrial fluid flows, animal social interactions, and chemical decontamination. My active areas of reseach include models of cleaning and decontamination, spatial networks and their applications, modelling of short term energy storage, the mechanics of tissue growth and remodelling, and discrete-to-continuum asymptotic analysis and its applications.
