I'm intersted in Number Theory, and currently looking at Elliptic Curves and Diophantine Geometry, although I have been known to maraud as a Functional Analyst in the past. Before joining the LSGNT I did both my undergraduate and master's degrees at the Queen's College, Oxford, writing my dissertation on C*-algebras and the Gelfand--Naimark theorems. Beyond maths I enjoy watching old films, playing golf (when time allows) and supporting Fulham FC.

I am primarily interested in differential geometry, with a focus on the representation theory of geometric objects (Lie groups, Clifford algebras, etc.). Before coming to London, I obtained my BSc from the University of Toronto, where I worked with Professor Kasra Rafi on hyperbolic geometry and compact Lie group representations. Other interests of mine include opera, singing/playing piano, and cooking.

My interests mainly lie within Geometry and Topology. I did my undergraduate at Imperial, and then Part III in Cambridge, where I wrote my essay on Topological Hochschild Homology. Outside of mathematics, I enjoy playing the piano and singing, as well as cooking.

I am interested in geometry and its interactions with mathematical physics. In particular I am interested in gauge theory and the construction of moduli spaces, and the use of techniques from many areas including complex, symplectic, and algebraic geometry to study such objects. Before starting my PhD in London I completed an M.Phil at the University of Adelaide studying moduli spaces of bundles over compact Riemann surfaces.

I am mainly interested in number theory, specifically in modular/automorphic forms and their associated galois representations. I did my BSc at Warwick before going on to do Part III at Cambridge where I wrote an essay on weight 1 modular forms. I also enjoy other stuff, eg cooking, listening to music and climbing.

Before joining the LSGNT I studied at Imperial for four years where last year I did a project in Enumerative Tropical Geometry with Professor Richard Thomas. This year, I will be working with Gromov-Witten invariants and derived categories. I am originally from Manchester, and outside Mathematics I like doing martial arts, mainly Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

My research interests centre in the field of analytic number theory, specifically applications of Zeta functions and their related conjectures. Through the study of automorphic forms, I’m beginning to broaden my perspective in this area of mathematics. I obtained my master’s degree at the University of Bristol in the study of Eulerian Beta integrals, and applications to non-linear Euler sums. Other interests include cooking, cycling and calisthenics.
