My research is grounded in mathematical systems and control theory and finds application in marine engineering, renewable energy, built infrastructure, systems biology, and human health and well-being.
Further, I am helping to develop the Mathematical Sciences taught programmes at the university's Penryn Campus and I am currently contributing to a number of modules for undergraduate students. A strong focus of the teaching lies in the interdisciplinarity of mathematics and its use within science and engineering.
I am also a member of the Mathematics department in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences.

I am the Mathematical Sciences Associate Director of Education.
I am interested in sharing pure and applied mathematics knowledge with students in our Mathematical Sciences and any other degree programmes.
I am particularly interested in Calculus and Analysis, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations and Dynamical System, System and Control Theory, and interdisciplinary teaching.
I am leading (or contributing to) the modules:
- Mathematics of the Environment (since 2014)
- Data, Signals and Systems (since 2015)
- Vectors and Matrices (since 2016)
- Calculus and Geometry (since 2016)
- Fundamentals of Interdisciplinary Mathematics (with Professional Skills) (since 2016)
- Advanced Interdisciplinary Mathematics (since 2018)
In recent years, I have lead or contributed to the modules:
