I am a lecturer in the School of Computing at the University of Leeds. My research focuses on the mathematical understanding of computational algorithms. This work includes modelling, analysis and simulation using skills from maths, computer science, physics and biology. I apply these ideas to the study of moving interface and free boundary problems in particular concerning the undulatory locomotion of microswimmers as part of the Leeds wormlab. My research is supported by a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship.

My current undergraduate teaching commitment is in Chengdu in China as part of the SWJTU-Leeds joint degree programme.
