Research Interests

Computational and gravitational physics. In particular:
  • Gravitational waves
  • Conformal field equations and asymptotic structure
  • Initial boundary value problems for Einstein's field equations
Other interests:
  • Theta-functions in integrable systems
  • Air-Water interfaces

Project/Thesis Possibilities

I am prepared to supervise projects on various topics within applied mathematics. Come to see me to discuss the possibilities.
