I am a Chancellor’s Fellow within EPCC, where I work on accelerating high-fidelity simulations of marine energy systems through a combination of data-driven techniques and novel parallel computing strategies. My background is primarily in computational fluid dynamics (e.g. smoothed particle hydrodynamics, lattice Boltzmann method, high-order compact finite differences), but also includes high-performance computing, flow control, optimisation, uncertainty quantification and data-driven engineering. Aside from research, my main interests are travel and sport (both watching and participating). In particular, I am especially keen on rugby, football, triathlon (not so much the swimming) and golf, although I follow a few others as well.
