Areas of expertise Developing and implementing sophisticated analytic techniques for solving boundary-value problems arising from problems in linearised water wave theory, acoustics, electromagnetics and elasticity. In particular: wave scattering by varying topography and submerged obstacles; trapped modes, edge waves and Rayleigh-Bloch waves in water waves and acoustics; scattering by periodic arrays of infinite, finite and semi-infinite obstacles; scattering by thin elastic sheets and ice sheets on water.
