About me

I’m Christopher. I live in Wellington, New Zealand, with my wife, my two daughters, and my dog. I work at the country’s largest Data & AI company, where I am the Chief Technology Officer.

Salvinia-type lattice with fluid surface attached

I received my PhD in Applied Mathematics, as well as my undergraduate degrees in Law and Mathematics, from the University of Otago.

My doctoral thesis, entitled Numerical Construction of Static Fluid Interfaces with the Embedding Formalism, is an attempt to reformulate the Young-Laplace equation for static fluid interfaces in the language of differential geometry, and to devise a numerical implementation for the system by Finite Elements.

My thesis is available for download from the University of Otago OUR Archive.
