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 to explain and control instabilities in fluids, such as transition to turbulence. I have also recently designed an inter-university competition based on the optimization of Formula One strategies, coded a neural network and a chess engine.
