I am a Research Assistant in the School of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Glasgow, working with Michael Whittaker on aperiodically ordered patterns possessing hierarchical or fractal-like structure. Before coming to Glasgow, I was a Lecturer of Pure Mathematics at Durham University and before that a Research Associate at the University of York. I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Leicester under the supervision of Prof. John Hunton and Prof. Alex Clark.
My main research interests are in the mathematics of Aperiodic Order, particularly of invariants of aperiodic patterns defined via tools from Algebraic Topology and Dynamical Systems. I am also interested in properties of cut and project sets, especially as a bridge between their geometric recurrence properties and the field of Diophantine Approximation, a branch of Number Theory which concerns how well rational numbers can approximate real numbers.
I am currently an organiser of the Glasgow Anaylsis Seminar. With Dan Rust, I organised the 2018 Model Sets and Aperiodic Order Conference. I am a member of the London Mathematical Society.
