computational mineral physics
physical processes leading to the deformation of Earth's deep interior
defects and disorder in minerals
high performance/high throughput scientific computation
Areas of expertise
I am a research scientist working as part of the geophysics group in the School of Earth Sciences, University of Bristol. I have diverse research interests including the development of new methods in computational mineral physics and materials chemistry, the physical processes leading to the deformation of the Earth's deep interior, studies of defects and disorder in minerals and aspects of high performance and high throughput scientific computation. I'm currently working on the deformation and anisotropy of the core-mantle boundary region as part of the ERC funded CoMITAC project.
