I am a Lecturer in the Geometry & Analysis group at School of Mathematical Sciences
at Queen Mary, University of London. I am also a member of the Relativity & Cosmology group. During the 20142015 academic year, I was a London Mathematical Society Grace Chisholm Young Fellow in the School.
 My research area is Geometric Analysis. More specifically, I am interested in Integrable PDEs arising in Mathematical Physics. My work has ranged from investigating harmonic maps appearing in General Relativity, to identifying combinatorial structure in PDEs in Fluid Dynamics.

Recently, I have been using analytic and geometric tools to study the nature of accretion in relativistic hydrodynamics. I am also interested in using conformal methods to better understand PDEs which couple Einstein's Equations to (viscous) fluids.
 A full CV may be found here (updated 21 Mar 2016).

 I have been invited to deliver a lecture on 24 Feb 2016 for the HGS Astronomical Society, entitled Einstein's (Mathematical) Legacy: Past and Present.
 I had the pleasure of hosting Dr. John Gribbin for a (sold out!) public lecture 13.8: The Search for the Theory of Everything at the Royal Institution on 16 Nov 2015.
 I delivered a public talk for the QMUL Maths Society on 03 Feb 2015, 18:00. Details (title, abstract, location, etc.) can be found on their webpage.
 In Autumn 2014, I was invited to participate in London's semiscientific answer to The Moth, The Story Collider, in Shoreditch. Details on the storytellers (myself included) can be found here!
