Personal profile

Biography

I am a senior lecturer in Applied Mathematics based in the Department of Mathematics. My research interests lie within the area of continuum mechanics with an emphasis on solid mechanics - particularly elasticity and viscoelasticity. My current focus is to understand how microstructure affects mechanical behaviour in biological soft tissues and composite materials used in industrial engineering applications.

I completed my CASE PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Manchester in 2012 before being awarded an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship (2013-2014) and an EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowship (2014-2017) both of which were focussed on imaging and mathematically modelling tendons. I was appointed as a lecturer here in 2017 and promoted to senior lecturer in 2020.
