Personal profile

I graduated from the University of Manchester, U.K. with a B.Sc. in Mathematics and Physics and a Ph.D. in Mathematics. I have worked under research contracts at the University of Birmingham, Loughborough University and Imperial College London all in the U.K. I have also worked as a Lecturer at Cranfield University, U.K.My research interests lie in the field of Applied Mathematics with particular emphasis on the two phase flow of fluids, particularly in the context on the nonlinear dynamics of gas bubbles in a liquid.
