Personal profile


Having started at the University of Portsmouth in 2014, I am a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics in the School of Mathematics & Physics. Before coming to Portsmouth I obtained my PhD in Mathematics from University College London (2010 - 2014), under the supervision of Professor Rod Halburd.


My research is currently funded by the EPSRC grant EP/W012251/1: ‘Geometric Aspects of Complex Differential Equations'. This project is about classifying nonlinear differential and difference equations in the complex plane via a geometric approach, using the Okamoto's space of initial conditions. I work on this project with one postdoc, Dr Marta Dell'Atti.

I am Director for Postgraduate Studies in the School of Mathematics & Physics.

M20725: Partial Differential Equations (Year 3 module - autumn term)
M20744: Real and Complex Analysis (Year 2 module - autumn term)
