Background and activities

I am a physicist, specialising in acoustics. I’ve touched on many topics in my research career, but my main focuses have been physical acoustics and computational physics.

I currently work as a post-doc at the Centre for Innovative Ultrasound Solutions. My topic is ultrasonic non-destructive testing in oil wells. Specifically, I am working on applying machine learning techniques to draw more information from the data measured by current ultrasonic logging methods.

I graduated as a PhD in 2014 from the acoustics group at the Department of Electronic Systems. My topic was sound propagation in lattice Boltzmann simulations. I am also the co-author of the Springer Graduate Texts in Physics textbook The lattice Boltzmann method: Principles and practice. At the end of 2017, it was highlighted by Springer as the fifth most downloaded Springer physics book published that year.
