About me

I received my PhD in Mathematics from Birkbeck, University of London in 2015, specialising in the theory of finite simple groups. Following this I have held research positions at Bielefeld University and the University of Western Australia as well as three years as a Guest Teacher at LSE where I have taught MA103, MA107, MA207 and MA212. In September 2020 to September 2023 I was an LSE Fellow in the Department of Mathematics. I have now returned as a guest teacher where I am teaching MA203.

My research interests range between finite group theory, geometric group theory and combinatorics. Outside of mathematics my interests revolve around music, languages and travel.
