How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Introduction
My research interests cover a wide range of physical mathematics, including fluid dynamics, solids mechanics, and mathematical geophysics. More generally, I am fascinated by the mathematics behind observable phenomena, and how asymptotics and other applied mathematical techniques can be used as a tool to help explain or model such problems.

Winkler's mattress model is often used as a simplified model to understand how a thin elastic layer, such as a coating, deforms when subject to a distributed normal load: the deformation of the layer is assumed proportional to the applied normal load. This simplicity means that the Winkler model has found a wide range of applications from soft matt...

The material characterization of ultra-thin solid sheets, including two-dimensional materials like graphene, is often performed through indentation tests on a flake suspended over a hole in a substrate. While this ‘suspended indentation’ is a convenient means of measuring properties such as the stretching (two-dimensional) modulus of such materials...

The material characterization of ultra-thin solid sheets, including two-dimensional materials like graphene, is often performed through indentation tests. While indentation is a convenient means of measuring properties such as the stretching (two-dimensional) modulus of such materials, experiments on ostensibly similar systems have reported very di...

It is known that in steady-state potential flows, the separation of a gravity-driven free surface from a solid exhibits a number of peculiar characteristics. For example, it can be shown that the fluid must separate from the body so as to form one of three possible in-fluid angles: (i) $180^{\circ }$ , (ii) $120^{\circ }$ or (iii) an angle such tha...
