Personal profile


I am a Royal Society University Research 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. I was awarded a Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw Fellowship in 2022 and a Royal Society University Research Fellowship in 2023.

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;
  • Fluid instabilities and turbulent transitions in confined or porous geometries;
  • Non-Newtonian and viscoelastic fluids, and elastic instabilities.
