I am an applied algebraic geometer. My mathematical interests can be divided broadly into two areas:

  1. Applications of Algebraic Geometry:
    • Biochemical reaction networks
    • Topological data analysis
    • Algebraic statistics

  2. Computational Methods in Non-Linear Algebra:
    • Gröbner bases
    • Parametric polynomial systems
    • Toric varities


  • I am co-organising a tropical geometry reading group in the Hilary term.
  • I am a program committee member of CASC 2023.
  • I co-host Michael Stillman in January 2022

Other than maths, I enjoy cycling. I am on Strava
