I am a second year PhD student, studying ergodic (i.e. long-time average) properties of mathematical models for geophysical fluids, also to understand their response to perturbations. I am interested in high dimensional dynamical systems, functional analysis and probability.

I am Professor of Applied Mathematics and currently President of the SIAM UKIE Section. I hold a joint appointment at Reading in the Departments of Mathematics and Meteorology and am a Principal Investigator of the National Centre for Earth Observation. My primary research is in numerical analysis with applications in numerical linear algebra, control theory, and data assimilation. Data assimilation is key to the accurate prediction of evolving dynamical systems. All my favourite theoretical and numerical techniques are needed in this field and there are many open problems yet to be solved.
