I’m currently a lecturer (equivalent to assistant professor in the USA system) in the Department of Engineering Mathematics at the University of Bristol and affiliated to the Applied Nonlinear Mathematics research group.

I have a broad range of research interests across the field of applied mathematics, but I focus particularly on engineering related applications. My specialities include

  • mathematical modelling (mostly engineering related, but I enjoy broader challenges),
  • the dynamics of nonlinear systems,
  • systems with delay (mostly delay differential equations), and
  • numerical methods for dynamical systems (particularly in the area of bifurcation analysis).
  • In the context of engineering, I also work on energy harvesting.

At the moment, I am looking to branch out into stochastic dynamics and, in particular, how traditional numerical algorithms for dynamical systems can be made to cope with stochastic systems.

If you are interested in working with me on any of these topics, please feel free to drop me an email (see my contact details).

Details about my research students, publications and previous research talks are available on separate pages.

Research data

For those of you who came here looking for research data on Control-Based Continuation, the files are here (405 MB download). The link was supposed to take you to the University of Bristol Research Data Store but unfortunately I made a mistake with the url… (Will be fixed in the final version of the paper!)
