I am a lecturer in the School of Computing at the University of Leeds. My general research area is Scientific Computation, and I am particularly interested in design, implementation and application of numerical methods for the solution of partial differential equations from fluid and solid mechanics. I am also interested in applying my methods to simulation and optimal control of biological swimmers (such as C. elegans) swimming in viscous fluids, modelling and simulation of aortic valve interacting with surrounding fluids and tissues, optimisation of design and control of thermo-fluid systems (such as microchannel heat exchangers), etc.
