Dr Elizabeth Arter Commercial Research Associate

Elizabeth specialises in numerical analysis, wave propagation problems and preconditioning iterative methods.

Research

Elizabeth is an applied mathematician whose research interests include numerical analysis, wave propagation problems and preconditioning iterative methods.

Recent work includes numerical analysis, solving PDEs, preconditioning linear systems, complex analysis, solving wave propagation problems and iteratively solving linear systems.

Projects

Academic and commercial projects Elizabeth has worked on include:

  • Linear modelling of patient data, to better understand drug effects
  • Mathematical modelling of corrosion of metal wastes and resulting escape of contaminants, a problem of interest for nuclear waste disposal
  • Developing algorithms for the numerical solution of wave propagation problems

Career

Before joining the IMI, Elizabeth was a postgraduate researcher at the University, working on developing solution methods for wave propagation problems arising in seismic inversion. Prior to this, she worked at Quintessa Ltd where she assisted with mathematical modelling of the corrosion of metal wastes contaminated with radionuclides.

Education

Elizabeth holds a PhD and a BSc in Mathematics, both from the University of Bath.
