Dr Reis obtained his BSc in Mathematics and MSc with Distinction in the Mathematical Theory of Complex Fluids from the University of Wales Aberystwyth. He was awarded his PhD in 2007 from Cardiff University's School of Mathematics and his doctoral work  on "The Lattice Boltzmann Equation for Complex Flows" won the Vernon Harrison Prize from the British Society of Rheology for the most distinguished thesis. After postdoctoral research at UCL ("Instabilities in Polymer Processing") and the University of Oxford ("Multiphase Lattice Boltzmann Models") he held the position of Junior Research Fellow at the Oxford Centre for Collaborative Applied Mathematics, University of Oxford. His first faculty position was as a lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Plymouth University and in September 2016 he joined the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Greenwich.

Dr Reis's primary research interests combine fluid mechanics, mathematical modelling, and numerical analysis. He is particularly interested in the theory of the lattice Boltzmann method and its application to rheology, microfluidics and multiphase flow problems. He is an associate editor of the International Journal of Computer Mathematics and has been a guest editor of several other international journals.   

Dr Reis is a fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) and of the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
