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, colloidal interactions with an interface, fundamental solutions of the Stokes equations, and various aspects of bacterial locomotion.


I have supervised pairs of students for over 250 hours in the following subjects of 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 have also supervised an undergraduate summer research project in 2019. We are now in the process of matching experimental data to theoretical and numerical models and hope to publish the results soon.


Please check my Google Scholar profile for the most up-to-date list of peer-reviewed articles. I do not always upload unreviewed work on the arXiv, so if you are interested in my most recent work then please get in touch.
