I am a lecturer in applied maths in the School of Mathematics, University of Birmingham. I was appointed from December 2009, initially as a HEFCE Birmingham/Warwick Science City Fellow (2009-12). Within the applied group I am part of the research theme Mathematical Biology. (Click the adjacent image see a great video produced by our undergraduates in which I have a bit part!)

My specialism is applying mathematical models to interpret experimental data in biofluids problems, encompassing research on sperm motility with Birmingham Women's Hospital, in addition to mathematics, engineering, synthetic biology and biophysics collaborators in Warwick, Oxford, Cambridge and Lisbon. I hold honorary positions at Centre for Human Reproductive Science, Birmingham Women's Fertility Centre and School of Engineering, University of Warwick.

I will be giving a WCMB Oxford Research Seminar on 21st February 2014 at 2.00pm (Oxford Mathematical Institute, room L5) and a Birmingham Popular Maths Lecture on 12th March 2014 at 7.30pm (Watson Building LRA).

I am lecturing Reaction Diffusion Systems in Chemistry and Biology in Spring 2014.
