  • Study Skills Lecturer


Originally from the Wirral, I completed my MEng in Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London in 2019 where I was awarded the Blue Tree Scholarship. I then came to Linacre College as a DPhil student in Applied Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute here in Oxford.

College Teaching

I am one of three study skills lecturers at Lincoln, specifically working with students in mathematical and physical science subjects. In this role I provide one-to-one study skills support for undergraduate students, as well as lectures and workshops throughout the year, to help students learn how they learn best.


My research interests focus on the mathematical modelling of fluid and mass transport phenomena for applications in biomedical research. Alongside collaborators in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, my DPhil project focuses on the modelling and design of novel tissue engineering bioreactors inspired by human vasculature. The development of such bioreactors aims to circumvent current treatment methods such as organ donation and transplantation, avoiding complications relating to bioavailability and biocompatibility with donor tissue.
