Research Interests

My research is in general relativity and gravitational aspects of string theory and the gauge-gravity correspondence. I have a particular interest in higher-dimensional black hole solutions. A full list of my papers can be found here and here .

Biographical Statement

I studied at the University of Cambridge, where I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Natural Sciences, followed by Part III Mathematics and a PhD in string theory at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. I was then a college lecturer at Oxford University and a postdoc at Durham University. In 2009 I was awarded an EPSRC career acceleration fellowship with Imperial College London, where I spent a year, before moving to the University of Edinburgh as a lecturer in 2010.
