Research summary

My diverse research interests include the development of new methods in computational mineral physics and materials chemistry, the physical processes leading to the deformation of the Earth's deep interior, studies of defects and disorder in minerals and aspects of high performance and high throughput scientific computation. I'm currently working on the deformation and anisotropy of the core-mantle boundary region as part of the ERC funded CoMITAC project. Further information can be found on my personal web pages.

I am a research scientist working as part of the geophysics group in the School of Earth Sciences, University of Bristol, currently working as part of the CoMITAC project. Much of my previous work has involved computational mineral physics at the atomic scale and, in particular, the development of methods for the simulation of dislocations in mantle silicates. I have authored several pieces of software, including the FoX library.
