Dr Michal Bosy


I am Lecturer in Mathematics and Computing at Kingston University since 2021. My research areas are Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing. I focus on the design, analysis and efficient implementation of finite or boundary element methods for partial differential equations. 

I received my PhD in 2017 from University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, working under the supervision of Victorita Dolean and Gabriel  Barrenechea on 'Efficientf discretisation and domain decomposition preconditioners for incompressible fluid mechanics'. Before moving to Kingston University, I was a Research Fellow at University College London from 2019. I worked with Erik Burman and Timo Betcke on 'Coupling of finite element and boundary element methods'. Between 2017-2019 I worked with Giancarlo Sangalli at University of Pavia on 'Efficient solvers for Isogeometric methods'.

Academic responsibilities

Lecturer in Mathematics and Computing


  • 2017 PhD in Applied Mathematics
  • 2013 Master of Pure Mathematics
  • 2011 Bachelor of Mathematics

Teaching and learning

I am a teacher of:

  • MA5500 Application of Calculus and Linear Systems module;
  • MA4510 Problem Solving and Computational Mathematics module;
  • CI5250 Computing Systems module;


  • Modeling real-life problems using differential equations.

  • Efficient solvers for large linear systems.

  • Development of a numerical software.

My research interests are focusing on the design and analysis of coupling methods for partial differential equations. These methods arise because of considering multi-physics problems or non-conforming methods, or using domain decomposition methods. The applications that I have studied include such fields of science and engineering as fluid dynamics, continuum mechanics and wave propagation.  

My theoretical investigations include design of well-posed discrete problems and a priori error analysis for Galerkin finite element methods using continuous and discontinuous approximation spaces. 

My computational studies include design of efficient iterative solversusing domain decomposition methods that allow take advantage of modern parallel architectures.
