John studied Mathematics at the University of Oxford, and obtained a DPhil in Numerical Analysis in 2013. Having spent time as an EPSRC Doctoral Prize researcher at Oxford, and as a Whittaker Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, he joined the University of Kent as a Lecturer in Mathematics in April 2015.
John's research lies in the area of numerical analysis, in particular at the interface between numerical linear algebra and computational optimization. He has developed preconditioned iterative methods for a range of PDE-constrained optimization problems, with a particular focus on such models for scientific processes, including fluid flow, chemical and biological mechanisms, and imaging problems. John also has research interests in a number of other areas of scientific computing, such as the computation of special functions, radial basis function methods, and interior point solvers.
He was awarded a Leslie Fox Prize in Numerical Analysis in 2015, and the University of Kent Faculty of Sciences Prize for Early Career Research in 2016.
