I am a lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow. My research interests are mainly in the area of fluid dynamics and in particular hydrodynamical turbulence. Much of my recent work has focused on turbulence in inviscid, quantum fluids such as superfluid helium, and how this form of turbulence compares to the classical form we are more familiar with. I am also interested in the nature of electrically conducting fluids, and the generation of magnetic fields through a dynamo process.
Previously, I worked as a research associate in the School of Mathematics & Statistics at Newcastle University. My research focused on applying Bayesian inference techniques to numerical models of the spread of the Neolithic farming.
I completed my PhD at the Newcastle University under the supervision of Anvar Shukurov and Carlo Barenghi. My thesis Flux Rope Dynamo introduced a new way of modelling the magnetic field in fluctuation dynamo simulations; considering the evolution of thin flux tubes in chaotic flows.
