I am a postdoctoral research assistant in the Analysis Group at the University of Edinburgh. Previously I was a PhD student at DAMTP, University of Cambridge where my supervisor was Maciej Dunajski. I am interested in problems in Lorentzian and conformal geometry motivated by mathematical relativity.
