I am a DPhil candidate at the Mathematical Institute in Oxford, under the supervision of Professors Frances Kirwan,
Jason Lotay and Alex Ritter, as well as a member of the MCR of Balliol College. I am being supported by the EPSRC. I was previously an undergraduate
at Oxford, where I completed a Part C dissertation under the supervision of Dr Markus Upmeier and a summer research project under the supervision of Dr Thomas Oliver.
I was also a counsellor for the 2018 edition of PROMYS Europe.

I am interested in moduli problems arising from algebraic geometry, and applying techniques from Geometric Invariant Theory (both reductive and non-reductive) to construct and study moduli spaces.
