I am an Associate Professor in Applied Mathematics at the University of Leeds. I completed my PhD in Fluid Dynamics from the University of Toulouse and became a Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Fellow from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in 2012. I then held research positions in Physics at UC Berkeley (2012–2014) and in Computational Fluid Dynamics at Imperial College London (2014–2015) before coming to Leeds as an Applied Mathematician.
I am fascinated by a range of scientific problems and my research revolves around the use of dynamical systems theory and numerical methods to explain and control instabilities in fluids, such as transition to turbulence and the formation of salt polygons on dry lakes. I am also managingan inter-university competition based on the optimization of Formula One strategies.
