I am a staff tutor in the Applied Maths group. Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) and a PhD student in Physics and Astronomy, both at the University of Southampton.
My current research is in modelling super-oscillatory focussing of light with applications in super-resolution optical imaging (beating the conventional diffraction limit). The circular prolate spheroidal wave functions form a basis set of functions band-limited under the Hankel transform. Optimising linear combinations of these basis functions informs the design of lenses which can focus light into super-oscillatory spots.
I am currently involved in M373 (Optimisation), MS327 (Deterministic and Stochastic Dynamics), MST224 (Mathematical Methods), M140 (Introducing statistics) and SM123 (Physics and Space).
My research is done in collaboration with Dr ETF Rogers (Optoelectronics Research Centre and Institute for Life Sciences, University of Southampton).
In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
