I am an applied mathematician, who uses and develops tools to address problems in science and engineering. My mathematical work draws on many areas of pure and applied mathematics, but areas of particular interest include stochastic analysis, statistical mechanics, computational geometry, and rigidity theory. My scientific work focuses mainly on modelling physical systems, including those in materials science and soft-matter physics.
