Modelling chemical diffusion through a skin-like membrane

I have now left Leeds to work as a HPC software developer at NAG. I work on supporting users on the UK's National HPC service, HECToR and on HPC Wales. In addition I am working with Prof Dieter Jacksch and Dr Sarah Al-Assam in the Atomic and Laser Physics group at the University of Oxford where I am developing the parallel capabilities of the TNT software library for simulating strongly correlated quantum systems. The final report on this dCSE project is now published.

Between 2000 and 2012 I worked as a Research Fellow for the Scientific Computation research group in the School of Computing at the University of Leeds. These pages summarise my work at Leeds.


My research interests are in the solving of numerical problems described by PDEs, in the application of parallel computing and Grid technologies, and in the efficient visualisation of large datasets.

The research projects page details the list of application areas in which I have worked. These include numerical modelling of elastohydrodynamic lubrication problems, modelling chemical diffusion through skin and other heterogeneous membranes, and work on visualization of cardiac data. Other research has involved close collaboration with the Visualization and Virtual Reality research group. The software produced in the course of my research is also described separately.

The complete list of my publications (excluding my PhD thesis) is also available. Links to PDFs of my papers are given on the downloads page.

Information on the PhD students I have supervised or been involved with is also available.

Images from some of my work were entered into the Faculty of Engineering research image competition 2008 and my 'Skin Deep' entry won first prize. Other images and movies of my work are given on the downloads page.

Teaching and other activities

Information on the modules at both undergraduate and masters level, on which I contribute teaching are given on the teaching page.

I am also involved in user support within the School of Computing for the large HPC facilities the university provides. Some links to useful reference material I have provided are given on the links page.

I also organise the Scientific Computing Seminar Series.

Comments to me please.
