I obtained the B.Sc. in Optical Physics from Angoulême University, Angoulême, France in 1999, the M.Sc. in Optoelectronics from the University of Angers, Angers, France in 2000 and the Ph.D. in Boundary Element Method for Multi-Dimensional Modelling of Light-Tissue Interaction from the University of Wales, Swansea, UK in 2007.

I am currently a lecturer in the School of Logistics and Manufacturing Engineering, within the Faculty of Applied Design and Engineering. I was previously a development engineer at Bookham Technology plc., Abingdon, UK, with a special interest in the analysis of light propagation in tapered silicon optical wave-guide devices, and the optimisation of the coupling between optical wave-guide components and angle-facet optical fibres.

Fellow of The Higher Education Academy

I have designed a range of teaching material and delivered them across the following modules:

Academic Year 2013-2014

I am actively engaged in both professional and pedagogy research work. My areas of interest include:

  1. Developing and implementing the Boundary Element Method for considering the radiative and thermal transport problems related to light-tissue interaction for real clinical case studies.
  2. Analysing and developing means to respond to the challenge of the decline in mathematics skills at university entry level.

The BEM research work that I undertake allows me to have a strong modelling experience that is beneficial to promote the relevancy and significance of numerical methods for the Advanced Computational Methods module in particular but also the Analytical Techniques in Engineering module I am in charge of.

From 2011 to 2013, I have taught mathematics on the International Foundation Programme ran by Inlingua. This external activity has favoured the recruitment of international students.
