Laura is an applied mathematician who specialises in combining various mathematical techniques to construct multi-scaled models that can inform decision making. Her research interests are nonlinear waves, dynamical systems, complex modelling and fluid flow analysis.
Before joining the IMI, Laura worked as a postdoctoral researcher within the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Reading. Here she contributed to the Thames Valley Vision project by forecasting the uptake of low-carbon technologies with project partners Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks. At the University of Reading, Laura also worked on the development of an energy disaggregation method for SMEs, which formed part of the Innovate UK Responsive Algorithmic Enterprise project.
Laura has a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Monash University and completed her Honours and BSc in Mathematics at the University of Melbourne.
