Many systems of interest in science and engineering exist over multiple scales, and the disparate scales of these systems are a significant challenge in numerical simulations. The fine-scale detail is essential to the accurate modelling of a multiscale system, but simulating at the finest scale is not only prohibitively inefficient and severely constrained by memory limitations, it is also an arduous task to analyse simulation data generated at a scale which may be significantly smaller than the scale of interest.

My research investigates different ways of managing the complexities of multiscale systems. For example, patch dynamics is an 'on the fly' numerical scheme which aims to quickly and accurately simulate a multiscale system at the desired scale of interest. I also look at analytic methods for extracting the slow evolution of multiscale models, thus providing a simplified model for more efficient simulation.
