I am a PhD student at the Mathematical Institute in the University of Oxford working under the supervision of Melanie Rupflin. Before that I was doing my undergraduate and masters degrees at the University of Warwick. I am interested in geometric analysis and nonlinear PDEs, in particular geometric flows, harmonic maps, minimal surfaces and Lojasiewicz inequalities (especially in the presence of singularities).
