Research Interests

An applied matematician with primary research interest in 

  • Mathematical modelling
    Derive mathematical models for multi-component materials and fluids with applications in biological sciences and industry, such as tumour growth and soluble surfactants in two-phase flows.
  • Analysis
    Mathematical analysis of coupled systems of elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations, sometimes with degenerate and singular terms. Establishing important properties such as existence and uniqueness of solutions, and various interesting asymptotic limits.
  • Optimal Control
    Employ optimal control methodology and Tikhonov regularisation to solve inverse identification problems inferring model parameters from data, and geometric inverse problems identifying location of interfaces between two different materials. Investigate convergence to solutions of the original inverse problem as the Tikhonov parameter tends to zero.

  • Numerical schemes
    Develop energy stable numerical schemes for the simulation of nonlinear partial differential equations with bulk-surface interactions and dynamic boundary conditions. Establish existence and convergence of discrete solutions.
