Over the years Professor Cross has worked on the computational modelling and analysis of a wide range of materials/metals and minerals processes. These processes generally involve complex interacting physics over a variety of scales. As such most of his research has involved what is now called multi-physics and includes the development of numerical methods and software technologies.

Typically the models Professor Cross has developed are very compute intensive and so the host software technologies are developed to take advantage of high performance parallel clusters.
