I am an EPSRC research fellow with Alison Parker, working on the representation theory of finite dimensional algebras. I am particularly interested in diagram algebras, Hecke algebras and symmetric and other permutation groups.

I obtained my PhD from City University London under the supervision of Maud De Visscher. A copy of my thesis can be found here.
