I am a senior lecturer of mathematics in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at  The University of Newcastle in Newcastle, Australia. I am  a member  of the CARMA Centre and an editor of The Journal of Applied Mathematics.

My research interests are in wave theory, mainly focused on water wave theory, ranging from the theoretical to the practical.  Most of my work has been concerned with water waves, but I have also worked on platonic crystals and the Boltzmann equation.  The main focus of my research in on wave scattering in the Marginal Ice Zone.  My  research has made some waves - appearing in  Scientific American  and BBC.  I was also interviewed on ABC1233. Recently I was interviewed on 2NURFM

In 2013 and 2014 I have taught MATH 1002, MATH 1120, MATH 1800 and MATH 3700.  I am currently teaching an honours course Introducton to Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations
