My work on mathematical modelling for flow-induced vibration has proved to be a touchstone for my work in scientific computing. By working only on scientific computing problems that arise directly from this practical problem of engineering interest, I ensure that the

results I discover actually serve at least one real purpose.

In 1996 I accepted the position of `Associate Researcher' at the Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel Laboratory at the University of Western Ontario.
