Welcome to my homepage! I am a mathematican based in Edinburgh, UK.
I am a Chancellor’s Fellow in the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh. I am affiliated with the MRC Human Genetics Unit, Institute of Genetics and Cancer.
I am interested in applications of pure mathematics and mathematical statistics, such as Topological Data Analysis and Targeted Learning, to causal questions in population biomedicine and public health policy. I am also interested in algebraic geometry, in particular the enumerative geometry of Calabi-Yau threefolds, such as (non-commutative) Donaldson-Thomas theory.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow with Ben Davison at the University of Edinburgh. During the academic year 2019-2020, I was on leave from Edinburgh working with Georg Oberdieck at the Haussdorff Center for Mathematics of Universität Bonn. Before this, I completed my PhD in algebraic geometry at the University of Edinburgh, working under the supervision of Arend Bayer.
In 2020-2021, I was a co-organiser of the Edinburgh Hodge Seminar.
