And so it begins...
So, I've finally done it. It only took the entirety of my PhD in order for me to create my own website. Since this is the first of (hopefully!) many updates to this blog, let me set a baseline of where I am at at the moment:
I submitted my PhD thesis on 31st March 2021 and my viva is scheduled for 10th June 2021 (Hooray!)
My 74-page paper with David Lloyd and Matt Turner on localised radial patterns in the ferrofluid experiment has been accepted by the Journal of Nonlinear Science (Hooray!)
I've applied for some postdoctoral jobs (Hooray?)
I've been rejected by some, but not yet all, of the jobs I've applied for (hooray...)
David Lloyd and I have been putting together a paper on the existence of localised cellular patterns in the Swift-Hohenberg equation (Hooray!)
I'm currently also putting together a paper on localised radial patterns in a model for desert vegetation, to be part of an IMA special issue (Hooray!)
I also built my personal website (Hooray!)
Thus, there's been much progress but there's still a lot of work to get done, it seems...
Some things to look forward to this month:
I'm giving an online talk to the Leeds Applied Nonlinear Dynamics (LAND) Seminars on the 11th May. It's my first talk where I'm including some of the work on cellular patterns, so that should be fun!
I'm attending the SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems (DS21) at the end of May, where I'm giving a contributed talk on the ferrofluid problem.
And many more exciting things in future months. So for now, all the best!
