I am a staff tutor in the Applied Maths group. Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) and a PhD student in Physics and Astronomy, both at the University of Southampton.
My current research is in modelling super-oscillatory focussing of light with applications in super-resolution optical imaging (beating the conventional diffraction limit). The circular prolate spheroidal wave functions form a basis set of functions band-limited under the Hankel transform. Optimising linear combinations of these basis functions informs the design of lenses which can focus light into super-oscillatory spots.
I am currently involved in M373 (Optimisation), MS327 (Deterministic and Stochastic Dynamics), MST224 (Mathematical Methods), M140 (Introducing Statistics) and SM123 (Physics and Space).
