I'm a computational mathematics researcher and software developer. My research interests include computational geometry, mesh generation and tessellation, high-order numerical methods for PDE's and high performance computing.
I'm currently working as a postdoctoral research associate at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I'm investigating a class of new algorithms for global ocean modelling under the direction of John Marshall at MIT.
I've previously undertaken a Ph.D. in applied mathematics under the supervision of David Ivers at the University of Sydney, where I developed a variation on the popular Delaunay refinement algorithm for two- and three-dimensional mesh generation. Additionally, I received a combined B.E.(Aerospace)/B.Sc.(Physics) from the University of Sydney with first-class honours in 2005.
In addition to my academic research, I've spent a number of years working as a commercial software developer.
