Chris studied Physics at The University of Oxford, before completing a PhD in Theoretical and Computational Physics at The University of Manchester. He has worked as a postdoctoral researcher on a range of problems in Statistical Physics and Soft Matter, from using rare event statistics and novel simulation techniques to study the glass transition to developing methods for increasing the yield of self-assembly processes. More recently he worked in Respiratory Physiology, developing models and writing software to extract diagnostic medical information from detailed measurements of the molecules flowing in and out of a patient’s mouth. Chris’s work in LightForm is to assist with the ongoing development of MatFlow and hpcFlow, helping to bring them to a wider audience within the materials engineering research community.
