I work on the application and analysis of numerical/computational schemes for partial differential equations. Of major interest is the development of reliable, practical and efficient finite element schemes for modelling mathematical models arising from physical and biological phenomena. Current fields of interest include:
- Multiphysics interaction within the heart and lungs.
- Numerical solvers for cardiac bidomian equations.
- Computational multiscale lung models.
- Stochastic differential equations for ion channel dynamics.
- Numerical models for cell movement.
- Numerical analysis and finite element analysis.

BiographyI obtained a first class degree in Mathematics and a PhD in Numerical Analysis from Leicester University in 1992 and 1997, respectively. During 1996-1998 I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at UMIST. This was followed by a Postdoctoral position at Oxford University until 1999. In 1999 I became a University Lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Sussex. In the summer of 2007 I was appointed to my current position of University Lecturer in Computational Biology at Oxford University.
