Biography

BSc (Mathematics and Computing) UCG, 1994
MSc (Mathematics) UCC, 1996
PhD (Mathematics) NUI Cork, 2000

I have been a lecturer in Mathematics at NUI Galway since 2000. Prior to that I studied mathematical and computer science at UCG (as NUI Galway was called then). In 1994 I moved to Cork to do a Masters in Numerical Analysis at UCC, where my research focused on novel stabilisation and meshing techniques for convection-diffusion problems.

From 1996 to 2000, I was a graduate research assistant working on a FP4-MAST 3 project: The Kinematics and Dynamics of Wave-Current Interactions. I developed computer simulations of mathematical models using novel numerical techniques, and validating our results using data from lab experiments. The project involved collaborators at University College London, Imperial College, Delft University, Delft Hydraulics, Université de Lille, and NTNU Trondheim. I graduated with a PhD in Mathematics in 2000.

My main research interests are concerned with the analysis of numerical algorithms for the approximate solution of differential equations. I have particular expertise in solving singularly perturbed differential equations, by finite element and finite difference methods, and in algorithms for solving resulting linear systems. I am also active in the application of novel methods to problems in numerical modelling.



Research Interests

Numerical analysis of singularly perturbed differential equations. Finite element and finite difference methods. Layer resolving meshes. Numerical linear algebra.
