I am a member of staff in the School of Mathematics. I was appointed from December 2009, initially as a HEFCE Birmingham/Warwick Science City Fellow. In October 2012 I was confirmed in post as Lecturer in Applied Mathematics.
My specialism is applying mathematical models to interpret experimental data in biofluids problems, emcompassing research on sperm motility with Centre for Human Reproductive Science, Birmingham Women's Hospital, in addition to mathematics, engineering and biophysics collaborators in Warwick, Oxford and Cambridge.
I am currently PI on EPSRC Grant EP/K007637/1 'Modelling the fluid mechanics of propulsion through a complex microenvironment' (project webpage to follow soon).
I also work with Developmental Biology groups in Lisbon and Dundee, and a range of other scientists and clinicians.
