About Me

I am a mathematician working at the University of Edinburgh.

My research area is geometric measure theory, specifically the quantitative study of rectifiable sets and metric geometry, as well as applications to harmonic measure.

I received my PhD in 2011 at University of California-Los Angeles under the supervision of John Garnett and Raanan Schul. After that I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Washington working with Tatiana Toro and then at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona with Xavier Tolsa before starting at the University of Edinburgh in 2016.


I have three PhD students:

  • Michele Villa (PhD 2020, currently a postdoc at the University of Jyväskylä working with Tuomas Orponen)
  • Matthew Hyde (PhD 2021, will start postdoc at Warwick University this year working with David Bate)
  • Jean Burnazyan (Graduating 2021)
