I am lecturer in the analysis group at the University of Edinburgh. Previously, I held postdoctoral positions in the University of Chicago, MSRI and the University of St Andrews. A CV can be found here.

PhD Opportunities

We encourage any interested students to apply to our programme, in particular women and members of underrepresented groups. There is no application fee and successful applicants are fully funded: see here for further details.


My interests lie in Euclidean harmonic analysis, in particular questions about operators whose definition depends on some submanifold of \(\mathbb{R}^n\) such as Fourier restriction/extension operators and generalised Radon transforms. I am also interested in discrete analogues of these objects.

Papers: research

Papers: expository
