I am a postdoctoral scholar at Penn State university, working with Nate Brown. I completed my PhD in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield, under the supervision of Paul Mitchener. My areas of study are functional analysis and topology.

Teaching and Outreach work

In Fall 2018 I taught MATH140E Calculus I. During Spring 2018, I taught MATH141 Honors Calculus II, and in Fall 2018 I taught MATH141 Calculus II.

Previously

I studied my MMath degree at the University of Sheffield, where I undertook a fourth year project supervised by David Applebaum on the topic of Fourier series on finite abelian groups.
