I am an applied mathematician whose research interests lie in dynamical systems and differential equations. My current research focuses on the geometric analysis of modelling applications from biology, medicine and neuroscience and on the development of techniques for reducing the complexity of these models. My approach relies on a combination of analysis and numerical simulation; specific techniques include (geometric) singular perturbation theory, geometric desingularisation ("blow-up"), invariant manifold theory and asymptotic analysis, as well as low-rank approximation and hierarchical matrix techniques.
