I started my lectureship in the Applied Mathematics Group of the Department of Mathematics, University of Manchester, in September 2016.
Previously, I was in Cambridge for quite some time. Between 2012 and 2016, I was a post-doctoral researcher working with Prof. Stuart Dalziel at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), University of Cambridge, and junior research fellow at Magdalene College, Cambridge.
In 2012, I graduated from Churchill College, Cambridge, for my PhD. My thesis was on the fluid mechanics of confined turbulent jets. I carried out my research at the BP Institute and DAMTP with Profs Colm Caulfield and Andy Woods.
In 2007 and 2008, I did a master by research at the National University of Singapore, working with Prof. Chew Yong Tian and Dr Christopher Yap. My thesis was on a new data-analysis technique called the Hilbert-Huang transform. This was a double-degree programme with the École polytechnique, Paris, where I did my undergraduate and first Master from 2004 to 2007.

I have been a regular reviewer for Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Proceeding of the Royal Society A, European Journal of Applied Mathematics, Chemical Engineering Science, the IChemE Journal Food and Bioproducts Processing, and the International Journal of Heat and Fluid Flow, and the Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research.
- In 2016, I set up with Prof. Ian Wilson (co-Leader) a Special Interest Group on the Fluid Mechanics of Cleaning and Decontamination. The SIG received 3 years of funding from the UK Fluids Network to organise bi-annual meetings with members of the SIG across the UK.
- In 2015 - 2016, I co-organised with Dr John Taylor the Friday Fluids Seminar Series at DAMTP, University of Cambridge.
- In March 2015, I organised the Lab Open Day at DAMTP, as part of the Science Festival, Cambridge. The event welcomed more than 500 people from all age during one afternoon. 20 fluids demos were set up by a team of about 40 demonstrators.
