I am a third year PhD student at the University of Edinburgh working with Michael Wemyss. Before this, I gained a BSc with Honours at the University of Edinburgh and a MASt from the University of Cambridge (Part III Mathematics).

My research involves studying finite dimensional algebras arising from geometry; in particular from the Homological Minimal Model Program developed by Michael Wemyss. This involves strong links with cluster tilting theory.

In 2016-17, I was one of two Postgraduate Representatives in the School of Maths. This involved attending meetings within the school to put forward PhD students' views about their studies and tutoring, as well as organising regular social events including the department's Christmas Party.

In 2017-18, I am one of the co-organisers for the Glasgow Edinburgh Algebra Research Student seminar (GEARS) which is an informal meeting between algebra PhD students and postdocs from Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt, and Glasgow universities.
