Research Summary
My research experience consists working on research projects at the forefront of mathematics and industry with a background that spans several fields, including: fluid dynamics and continuum mechanics; analytical and numerical methods; dynamical systems; industrial modelling; operational research and queueing theory.

My current work and interests lie in continuum mechanics, particularly particles in flow near walls and within channels. This is motivated by applications in the field of aircraft icing - a significant safety issue within the aviation industry, requiring modelling and indepth understanding of crucial and complex problems both mathematically and industrially. Research in this sector requires: the modelling of particle trajectories in flow concerning an oncoming aircraft, particle collision dynamics and the physics of ice growth. This field combines modelling processes from a range of disciplines including continuum mechanics, physics and engineering.

Explicitly, my work covers the analytical and numerical modelling of:
- the trajectories of non-spherical rotating bodies that experience lift and drag forces;
- the trajectories of curved particles and the dynamics involved when rebounding off a surface/skimming off a water layer;
- splashing/breakup dynamics;
- the coupled body-fluid interaction of a particle within the flow of an oncoming boundary layer.
