I am a member of the Complex and Biological Fluids group at DAMTP, studying for a PhD under the supervision of Prof Eric Lauga. My work so far has focused on the navigation of microswimmers in complex environments, the stochastic properties of dissolving colloids, and various aspects of bacterial locomotion.


I have supervised the following subjects for the Mathematical Tripos:

  • IA Vector Calculus
  • IB Quantum Mechanics
  • IB Fluid Dynamics
  • IB Methods
  • IB Variational Principles
  • II Fluid Dynamics
  • II Waves

Jointly with George Fortune I am also supervising an undergraduate summer project in 2019.
