Development and application of numerical algorithms for the mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of multi-physics, multi-material problems of engineering interest. Research interests include:
* The development of a multi-physics approach to modelling the interaction of plasma with elasto-plastic materials for aerospace components undergoing lightning strikes.
* The development of cut-cell and ghost-fluid methods for embedded boundary sub-cell modelling of material interfaces.
* Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) turbulence modelling approaches for simulating turbomachinery-related problems.
