I am a lecturer in mathematics and a researcher at the E. A.
Milne Centre for Astrophysics.
I studied mathematics at the National University of Singapore,
and the University of Cambridge, where I completed Part III of the
Mathematical Tripos and a PhD in theoretical astrophysics. I
was previously a member of Oxford Astrophysics and Fellow in
Mathematics at Lincoln College, University of Oxford.
For more information about myself and my work, please visit
my personal website.
My research focuses on cosmology, i.e. the
study of the birth and evolution of the Universe, and the origin of
large-scale structures observed today.
In particular, my research involves applications of mathematical
techniques - both analytical and numerical, to problems in
cosmology. My interests in cosmology span a wide range of
theoretical topics (inflation, dark energy, statistics of
large-scale structures) at various observational wavelengths
(primordial gravitational waves, cosmic 21cm and Lyman-alpha
I am the Programme Director for mathematics. This means
that I work closely with lecturers and students to ensure that
we achieve an excellent standard in the learning and
teaching of mathematics at Hull.
Outside of teaching and research, I play the violin - I am
member of the
Hull University Camerata.
I also casually maintain the websites for mathematics and
