Applied Analysis

My research interests lie within the field of applied analysis, with a particular focus on models describing liquid crystalline-type materials. In the simplest case, liquid cyrstalline phases arise when anisotropic interactions between particles give rise to phases of ordered particles. I typically work within the context of mean-field flavoured models (Maier-Saupe-like for long range attractive forces, and Onsager-like for steric, repulsive forces). These take the form of zero-order non-local models, though they implicitly require less regularity than more common non-local problems in fractional Sobolev spaces. I am currently a postdoc at BCAM, after spending two years in a de facto shared position between the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Kent State University, the Liquid Crystal institute at Kent State University, and the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, the latter of which I also completed my DPhil under the supervision of Prof. Sir John Ball, and mentored by Profs. Peter Palffy-Muhoray and Xiaoyu Zheng at Kent State University.
