About

I completed my PhD in Applied Mathematics under the supervision of Prof. John Appleby (and with the generous financial support of the Irish Research Council) at DCU in December of 2017. As of July 2018, I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Brandeis University working under Prof. Jonathan Touboul.

My PhD contributes to the qualitative theory of differential and difference equations, particularly functional and stochastic equations – see my research page for more details about my doctoral work. At Brandeis I work on systems motivated by applications in ecology, neuroscience and morphogenesis. In common with my previous work, these equations are typically nonlocal (in time, space or both).

My Curriculum Vitae can be found here.

I am also keen to teach mathematics to the highest standard possible and you can read about my teaching philosophy here.
