​I am a project scientist based within the chemistry group of Scientific Computing Department. I work on industrial and academic projects with the Hartree Centre alongside a core team of researchers in the chemistry group and Hartree Centre, specialising on mesoscale to atomistic simulation of soft matter for industrial and scientific problems ranging from surfactant chemistry, polymers to miscibility of oils and wax formation. Part of my role is the development of software for analytics and simulation setup. I am the main developer of the analytics code UMMAP which is capable of performing a range of analytics on trajectory data produced by several molecular dynamics packages and our own code DL_MESO.

I have previously been involved in a diverse range of projects, including:

  •  Biochemistry modelling of protein structure at the Department of Chemistry at University of Warwick with Dr Rebecca Notman and Dr Tiff Walsh.
  • Analysis of nanoparticle dispersion in composites from SEM and TEM images in a joint position between Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London  and Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London working with Dr Ambrose Taylor (Imperial), Professor Steven Gilmour (Statistical Sciences, University of Southampton) and Professor Felicity Guild (Imperial).
  •  Condense matter physics of granular materials during a PhD in Physics at University of Nottingham (2005-2010) under the supervision of Dr Mike Swift.
