I am a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh working with David Jordan, and a member of the Hodge Institute and Algebra and Number Theory Group at UoE.

My research interests revolve around representation theory and geometry, and areas where the two collide e.g. factorization homology of quantum groups over surfaces, or the geometry of quantum groups at roots of unity. I'm also interested to the relations to low-dimensional topology (topological field theory).

Before coming to Edinburgh I studied the MSc Mathematical Physics at the University of Amsterdam, and visited UC Berkeley for the academic year 2014-2015.

Simon Crawford, Tomasz Przezdziecki and myself organise the GEARS seminar for the 2016-2017 academic year. This is a joint seminar between University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow and Heriot-Watt University aimed at PhD students that use algebra in their research.

Currently, we have a reading seminar on higher categories running in Edinburgh, joint with students from Heriot-Watt.
