My day-to-day activities involve helping researchers run their parallel codes on the ARCHER2
and Cirrus HPC machines.
Working at EPCC also gives me the opportunity to engage in computational science research, such as accessing the suitability of accelerator devices for HPC workloads or investigating the benefits of using alternative process communication strategies.
My background is in theoretical solar physics: I did my PhD at Manchester followed by a
PostDoc at St Andrews, working on magnetohydrodynamic simulations of the solar corona,
the outer atmosphere of the Sun.
Outside of work, I enjoy running and have competed in hill races and long-distance events such as the Cape Wrath Marathon and the Pentland Skyline.
