Personal profile


I am a Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw Fellow in the School of Engineering at the University of Manchester.


I read Engineering at the Univesity of Cambridge, specialising in fluid dynamics. I subsequently completed a PhD at the University of Edinburgh, developing techniques for modelling seismic air gun bubbles, before joining the University of Manchester in 2017 as a research associate in the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics group. In 2022 I was awarded a Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw Fellowship.

Research interests

The primary focus of my research is the development of novel numerical methods for complex flows, and their use to obtain insights into fundamental fluid behaviour. A particular focus is the challenge of combustion simulations in support of the next generation of cleaner or hydrogen based combustion technologies.

My specific research interests are:

  • High-order and mesh-free methods (especially LABFM and SPH);
  • Reacting flows and flame-turbulence-structure interactions;
  • Convection and thermal turbulence in porous geometries;
  • Non-Newtonian and viscoelastic fluids, and elastic instabilities;
  • Free surface and multiphase flows;
  • Artificial boundary conditions;
  • Bubble dynamics.
