I am a third year DPhil (grad) student (started in April 2015) in mathematics at the University of Oxford and a member of New College. My supervisors are Ulrike Tillmann and
From October 2016 to September 2017 I was an enrichment student at the Alan Turing Institute.
I am the editor-in-chief for
The New Collection, an interdisciplinary student-led academic journal that publishes research done by postgraduates at New College.
I am a member of the topology research group:
....and of the mathematical biology research group:
I am organising the Applied Algebra and Topology Seminar. Information about past and future meetings can be found here:
From 2016 to 2017 I was the organiser of the Junior Computational Algebra and Topology Seminar, which has now been integrated into the seminar above. Information about past meetings can be found
I am applying for jobs! Here you can find a brief version of my CV.

In Hilary and Trinity Term (January-June) 2017 I was tutoring Topology at New College and St Hugh's College.
In Hilary (January-March) 2017 I was the class tutor for Computational Algebraic Topology. I also gave a tutorial on Category Theory for the Stanford in Oxford programme.
In Hilary and Trinity Term (January-June) 2016 I was the tutor for Topology at New College.
