I am a member of the Waves and Continuum Mechanics group in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Liverpool. I both teach and carry out research in Applied Mathematics. I like to say that I am a very applied mathematician, which essentially means that I look at physical problems from the point of view of mathematics. I use and develop new mathematical techniques for the study of wave propagation, localisation and fracture in complicated materials. Although I primarily work with mechanical waves, I also have an interest in electromagnetic and acoustic waves, as well as fluid mechanics.
I am also Head of Teaching for the Department of Mathematical Sciences. You can read more about the things I do on my personal website.
