I am a Reader (Associate Professor) in Industrial Mathematics at the University of Portsmouth where I lead the Industrial Mathematics Group in the Department of Mathematics. My research focusses on developing mathematical models of industrial processes. I have written papers with and/or recieved funding from multinational companies such as J&J, Philips, Pfizer, Teva Pharmaceuticals and Analog Devices. I have also worked with smaller companies such as RUSAL Aughinish Alumina, National Vehicle Distribution.

My work has been profiled in articles by the Wall Street Journal, the Economist (winning the Economist's 2011 Babbage Bizzare-Boffinry Award), the BBC (also), Nature News and Nature Physics.

Projects I supervised:

  • Won the Knowledge Transfer Ireland 2017 Consultancy Impact Award (with Rusal Aughinish Alumina and MACSI).
  • Shortlisted for the ECMI 1017 Hansjoerg Wacker Memorial Prize for the for the best mathematical dissertation at the Masters level on an industrial project (with Milena Veneva).
  • Shortlisted by the Irish Lab Awards for the 2013 Collaboration Achievement Award (with Aughinish Alumina and MACSI)
  • Highly Commended by the 2011 Undergraduate Awards of Ireland and Northern Ireland (with Grainne Kirby)
