Current position: in November 2011 I began a Research Fellowship at the Global Sustainability Institute, Anglia Ruskin University. My new webpage can be found here.

My PhD: was on the noise generated by the new and fuel-efficient Advanced Open Rotor aeroplane engine. This engine involves two very large counter-rotating propellers with no casing around them. The interaction between the rotating blades and wind leads to tonal noise, quite different from current aeroengines.

Young Researchers in Mathematics (also known as Beyond Part III) was a new three-day conference held in Cambridge over 16-18 Apr 2009 which I co-founded. Two hundred PhD students from across the UK and further afield attended. YRM 2010 (Cambridge again), YRM 2011 (Warwick), and YRM 2012 (Bristol) were all great fun too. YRM 2013 will take place in Scotland.

Ice sheets: I previously worked on an experimental project in the fluids labs here, modelling ice sheet-ice shelf systems using Golden Syrup! The results, together with new theoretical work, are presented in the paper Dynamics of Viscous Grounding Lines, Rosalyn AV Robison, Herbert E Huppert, M Grae Worster Journal of Fluid Mechanics.
