I am an applied mathematician, who uses and develops tools to address problems in science and engineering. My mathematical work draws on many different areas of applied mathematics, but areas of particular interest include stochastic analysis, statistical mechanics, and computational geometry.

My scientific work lies broadly in two areas: materials science and fluid dynamics. I have investigated these in a range of applications, including soft-matter physics, colloids, sphere packing, ion beam sputtering, internal waves, ocean mixing, tides, and lava tubes. Please see my research page for a more detailed description of my work.
