Lecturer in Simulation and Modelling, Brunel University London

I am a Lecturer in Simulation and Modelling at Brunel University. I'm also an Emeritus Fellow for the EPSRC-funded 2020 Science Network, a Fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute, and a Visiting Lecturer at the Centre for Computational Science at University College London. After my PhD I worked as a post-doctoral researcher on EU projects about distributed multiscale computing (MAPPER) and high-performance computing towards the Exascale (CRESTA). I joined Brunel University in September 2015 to become a Lecturer and I currently collaborate in the EU ComPat project about multiscale computing towards the Exascale.

I am an interdisciplinary researcher who focuses primarily on multiscale modelling and high-performance computing, but takes along some of the major challenges that surround these topics. These include performance modelling and optimization, distributed computing, new approaches for code coupling, and techniques to make intensive computational research easier and more efficient.

In terms of applications, I currently model bloodflow in cerebral arteries (using lattice-Boltzmann), and self-assembly processes in layered materials (using molecular dynamics methods). I have worked with a number of other models before (e.g., dark matter simulations to resolve structure formation in the universe), and I am likely to pick up new applications as I proceed with my career.
