I am a staff tutor/regional academic 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 research interests are in numerical modelling: previously of wave propagation with applications in structural vibrations, and currently in modelling super-oscillatory focussing of light with applications in super-resolution optical imaging (beating the conventional diffraction limit). This has included work on finite element methods, genetic algorithms, semi-analytic techniques and techniqes from Fourier optics.
I am currently involved in M373 (Optimisation), MS327 (Deterministic and Stochastic Dynamics), MST224 (Mathematical Methods) 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.
