Personal profile


I completed both my undergraduate (Mathematical Engineering - 2012) and postgraduate (Applied Mathematics - 2015) degrees at the University of Birmingham. My doctoral thesis concerned the stability of three-dimensional non-Newtonian boundary layer flows. Since completing my PhD I have held lectureships at the University of Leicester and Oxford Brookes University. In addition to this, I have twice visited the University of Sydney to undertake collaborative research work. 

I joined Coventry University in January of 2018 as a Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics. I have experience teaching across both Mathematics and Engineering undergraduate degree programmes and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). 

I have supervised numerous bachelors and masters level mathematics and engineering projects in Fluid Mechanics and currently co-supervise three PhD students from the Computational Engineering and Control Research Group within the Department of Engineering at the University of Leicester.

I am part of the UK Fluids Network (UKFN) and contribute to two Special Interest Groups (SIGs): Non-Newtonian fluid mechanics and Boundary layers and complex rotating flows.
