My research addresses mathematical systems and control theory and their applications within marine engineering, renewable energy, systems biology and human wellbeing. My academic work includes developing the Applied Mathematics programmes for both undergraduate and postgraduate taught students at the Penryn Campus, with a focus on interdisciplinary applications and in close liaison with my colleagues.

I am also a member of the Environment and Sustainability Institute.
