Lecturer in Bioengineering
My research aims to understand how different movements are achieved across a variety of steady and non-steady tasks; in particular, how the mechanics and muscles are used to control movement. I apply this knowledge to differentiate healthy gait from injury and disease, by identifying these fundamental control priorities. Identification of these control priorities, and using these to discover markers for disease severity will help assess the effectiveness of different treatment interventions for gait deficits. Non-steady tasks, such as walking over obstacles are key to identifying these underlying control parameters.

Lecturer in Engineering Science
I design numerical models for predicting the behaviour and understanding the uncertainties in the operation of nuclear reactor cores and other nuclear processing facilities. In particular I develop mathematical models to accurately predict neutron and gamma transport within nuclear reactors, and couple these to thermal hydraulic codes that model coolant flows and heat transfer within a core. I am particularly interested in analysing both current nuclear reactors as well as those due to be built within the UK in the coming years, in particular the boiling water reactors. I am also heavily involved in the design of new mathematical models that predict the progression/state of a nuclear reactor?s core in the event of severe accident scenarios.
