I am a junior lecturer in applied mathematics at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Limerick. I am part of MACSI, the Mathematics Applications Consortium for Science and Industry. MACSI is funded by SFI (Science Foundation Ireland) to promote mathematical modelling in schools, universities and industry. According to the Economist (Coming to a head), I lead a "crack group of mathematicians". My research has been featured by BBC news online (Falling stout bubbles explained), nature.com ( A turnstile for atoms, The widget free way to foamy stout), Nature Physics (Stout Fizz-ics) and wired.com (Tiny fibres put the head on stout beer).
My research interests lie in the area of mathematical modelling and industrial mathematics. My current projects involve
I am interested in all projects, whether academic or industrial, where the main challenge is to model poorly understood phenomena. If you are interested in working with me, please contact me directly, firstname.lastname@example.org, or get in touch with MACSI, email@example.com.
