## Intro

My main research interests are in computational mathematics, in particular,
in numerical algorithms for high-dimensional problems arising with partial differential equations as well as in data-driven applications.

I enjoy working with industry partners. Companies I have engaged with through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, PhD/MSc projects, or one-to-one consultancy include Arup, AspenTech, Autotrader, Intel, N Brown Group, Process Integration Ltd, and Schlumberger-Doll Research. (And here's my maths ancestry.)
