Welcome to my Webpage. In these pages you will find information about my research and teaching. Some of my recent papers will be available as preprints here.

My research focusses on the effect of microscale features on the behaviour of materials. These microscale features could be phases in shape memory alloys, grains in a polycrystalline material, surface energy variations causing changes in the wettability by drops or flow in microchannels and interaction with microsized particles.

In order to study these phenomena, I use modelling techniques which span the various length scales which are of interest in these problems. I use Phase field models, Dissipative Particle Dynamics methods and other discrete element models to study these problems.
