Personal profile

Research Interests

I am originally trained as a theoretical physicist and my PhD is in mathematical physics from Heriot-Watt University. I am broadly interested in mathematical models in geophysics. In the past I have worked in the modelling of metamaterials for electromagnetic reflectors and in the seismic and hydraulic modelling of subglacial environments.

I am currently trying to understand the intricacies of the elastic behaviour of partially saturated poroelastic media. I am developing a pore-network model that will hopefully capture these intricacies and whose aim will be to simulate the conditions found in CO2-storage reservoirs. It will therefore be suited to monitor the mobility of CO2 in these environments. I do most -if not all- of my model implementations in the software package Mathematica.

My funding comes from the DiSECCS EPSRC grant and I collaborate with Mark Chapman (Edinburgh), Kelvin Amalokwu (NOC) and Xiaoyang Wu(BGS).
