I am an applied mathematician in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at University College Dublin. My research is based on fluid mechanics: geophysical flows, environmental and industrial problems, and particulate-laden flows. I am also a member of the Earth Institute.
Previously, I held a short-term JSPS fellowship at Kyoto University within the Coastal Engineering Laboratory in the Disaster Prevention Research Institute. I was a postdoctoral researcher in Frederic Dias' Wave Group at University College Dublin. My project was based on the interaction of storm waves with coastal structures, specifically the movement of very large boulders during storms. For my graduate studies, I worked with Ian Griffiths and Dominic Vella on water filtration at Oxford University. There, I was also a member of Somerville College and St Anne's College.
For work, I have been able to travel to many places. Seeing the world, with all its unique cultures, nature, and food has been a special privilege. Please see the Events section for a complete list of conferences, workshops, study groups, and seminars I have contributed to. The above photo was taken during a workshop held at Kylemore Abbey in Connemara, Ireland.
