Brief bio
As of January 2019, I am a Professor in Pure Mathematics at the University of Oxford and Tutorial Fellow at Balliol College.
I was previously a Professor of Mathematics at University College London, effective from 1 October 2018, having been a Reader in Mathematics at UCL
from 1 October 2014, and appointed as a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at UCL on 1 April 2011.
I am a PI of the Simons Collaboration on Special Holonomy in Geometry, Analysis and Physics. I was recently awarded a Leverhulme Trust Research Project Grant (as CoPI with Schulze), a Royal Society International Exchanges grant as PI (with Conan Leung as CoI), a Newton Mobility grant (as CoI with Sá Earp as PI), and an EPSRC Standard Grant (as CoI with Joyce as PI and Ritter as CoI).
I was awarded an EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellowship, which ran from 1 September 2009 until 31 August 2014. From the start of my fellowship until my appointment at UCL, I was a member of the
Geometry group at Imperial College London. I was also awarded an ESPRC Standard Grant, an EPSRC Mathematical Sciences Small Grant (with Haskins as CoI), an HIMR Focused Research Grant, LMS Scheme 1 and Scheme 3 Grants, funding for an LMSCMI Research School (with Haskins and Salamon as coorganisers). I was the LMS Rep for UCL.
During the academic years 0507 and 0809 I was a Junior Research Fellow at University College, Oxford.
I was awarded an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and spent the academic year 0708 at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, working with Robert Bryant.
I studied for my DPhil at Oxford from 0205 under the supervision of Dominic Joyce. During this time I was first at New College before moving to
Christ Church upon the award of a Senior Scholarship. I had previously been at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, for my undergraduate degree in Mathematics.
