I am currently Professor of Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics of Imperial College London and Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Mathematics of Planet Earth http://www.mpecdt.ac.uk/. My long-term research interests lie broadly in Stochastic Analysis, a branch of Mathematics that looks at understanding and modelling systems that behave randomly.
I am one of the four PIs of the project Stochastic Transport in Upper Ocean Dynamics .
This project has received a six year Synergy ERC award.

I am taking new PhD students (to start in October 2024). If you are interested please get in touch as soon as possible
(certainly before submit your application). This will maximise you chances to get a place and get funding. The Martingale Foundation welcomes
applications for funding (deadline 25 October 2023). Please check https://martingale.foundation/ for details.
