Associate Professor/University Lecturer, Mathematical Institute, Oxford
Tutorial Fellow, Trinity College, Oxford

I am an applied mathematician, using mathematical models to investigate scientific problems. Much of my research relates to problems in the geosciences - a particular focus currently is on glaciers and ice sheets.

A list of publications is here.

Please get in touch if you'd like to know more, especially if you're a student interested in research.


Lectures from Iceland 2013 are here.

Lectures from Karthaus 2014 are here (sliding), here (hydrology) and here (geomorphology).
