Research Interests

My research is in geometric representation theory- more specifically I am interested in algebraic groups, quantum groups and the geometry and topology of varieties associated to them.
Recently I have been working on quantum groups at a root of unity and their relation to the rational Cherednik algebra and the Hilbert scheme of points in the plane.




I am Tutor in Pure Mathematics at Christ Church. Details for college teaching are here. This term I am also teaching the Part A Algebra II course. Previously, I have taught courses on such things as Lie algebra and the Classical Groups.


I am organizing a short conference funded by the LMS on the interactions between mirror symmetry and geometric representation theory in the context of symplectic resolutions in July. Go here for more information.
