I am member of the Geometry group in Oxford, working with Frances Kirwan . Before this I was an EPSRC Research Fellow in Oxford and a William Seggie Brown Research Fellow at Edinburgh University. I was a PhD student of András Szenes at Budapest University of Technology .


I gave a graduate lecture course on Singularity Theory in Trinity Term, 2010. The lecture notes are available here.

I gave Part C 3.1a Algebraic Geometry lectures in Michaelmas 2010 and 2012, here are the lecture notes.
