My PhD at the Australian National university under Stephen Roberts and Christopher Zoppou was on developing robust, efficient and well validated numerical methods to model dispersive wave equations. In particular hybrid Finite Element Methods and Finite Volume Methods to solve the Serre equations. My current Post-Doc research under Luke Bennets at the University of Adelaide is on understanding the interaction between ocean waves and sea ice.
