Research

I am studying in the Scientific Computing team of the Mathematics department, whereby I will be focusing mainly on applications within Mathematical Biology. My PhD thesis is titled: Numerical analysis of a diffuse interface model for plant cell evasion caused by the rice blast fungus. My (main) supervisor is Professor Vanessa Styles and my 2nd supervisor is Professor Anotida Madzvamuse. 

 

The conferences I have attended are:

   -   European Finite Element Fair (EFEF) 2017, Milan, Italy

   -   Scientific Computing and Differential Equations (SciCADE) 2017, Bath, UK

   -   Partial Differential Equations in Biology 2017, Warwick, UK

 

The conferences I have given contributed talks at are:

   -   Mathematics and Physics Postgraduate Conference 2018, University of Sussex, UK (Motion by mean curvature and an introduction to the Rice Blast fungus)

   -   Mathematics Postgraduate Seminar 2019, University of Sussex, UK (Numerical simulation of Diffusion Induced Grain Boundary Motion)

   -   European Finite Element Fair (EFEF) 2019, Nicosia, Cyprus (Numerical simulation of Diffusion Induced Grain Boundary Motion)

 

The conferences I have given an invited talk in a mini-symposium are:

   -   Scientific Computing and Differential Equations (SciCADE) 2019, Innsbruck, Austria: Computational PDEs in cell boilogy (Numerical simulation of the Rice Blast fungus using curve shortening flow and reaction-diffusion on the curve)

   -   European Numerical Mathematics and Advanced Applications Conference (EnuMath) 2019, Egmond aan Zee, The           Netherlands: Computational surface PDEs (Numerical simulation of the Rice Blast fungus using curve shortening flow and reaction-diffusion on the curve)
