## Welcome!

I am a Senior Lecturer (this is equivalent to Associate Professor) at the School of Mathematics at Cardiff University. I am a member of the Mathematical Analysis group. My research is supported by an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship (EP/N020154/1).

Broadly speaking, I am interested in analysis and partial differential equations. Primarily, I study problems with a strong physical motivation. These include problems in kinetic theory and multiscale problems. I also have a particular interest in the spectral theory associated to these problems, and in particular its applications in ergodic theory and computational complexity.

***NEW* Workshop:** Together with Baptiste Morisse we are organizing a workshop planned for 25-29 June 2018, entitled "An Analyst, a Geometer and a Probabilist Walk Into a Bar".

**EPSRC project website:** *QUEST: Quantitative Estimates in Spectral Theory and Their Complexity*

**Conference:** In September 2015 I organized a conference entitled "The Cauchy Problem in Kinetic Theory: Recent Progress in Collisionless Models".

**Students:** I am happy to supervise students in any of the above topics (also see my *Research* page for more details). Please contact me if you are interested. Click here for a brief description of projects.
