I started my PhD at the University of Glasgow in September 2014. I am being supervised by Dr. Christian Voigt, and I am working on understanding the K-theory of quantum groups.

You'll find more about what I do below. I hope to add some more content soon!

Teaching

In my second year at the University of Southampton, I was an undergraduate marker for Linear Algebra II. In my third and fourth year, I was an undergraduate tutor in the weekly first year workshops.

Currently I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Glasgow. I have tutored most of the second year courses (A, B, D, E, F). If you are in one of my tutorials, I am happy to answer any questions you might have. You can find my contact details below.

I was a lecturer at the University of Glagsow Summer School in 2016. This was a course for high school students to bridge the gap to university.

Undergraduate Projects

In my third and fourth years at the University of Southampton, I was supervised by Dr. Bernhard Koeck in two projects on Riemann surfaces. As well as giving me a taste of this fascinating area of complex function theory, these projects also exposed me to some beautiful applications of complex and functional analysis.
