I am a reader at the University of Edinburgh, and a member of the Hodge Institute. From November 2017 I have been supported by the ERC starter grant "Categorified Donaldson-Thomas invariants", while from January 2018 I am additionally supported by a Royal Society university research fellowship.

My research is in Donaldson-Thomas theory and cohomological Hall algebras, with a focus on applications to cluster algebras, nonabelian Hodge theory and geometric representation theory.

In the Autumn of 2021 I will be hiring a postdoc, for a duration of 2 years. I'll be looking for somebody who works on at least one of: Hall algebras, nonabelian Hodge theory, geometric representation theory, cluster algebras, matrix factorizations, derived algebraic geometry, DT theory. The post should be advertised soon, in the meantime feel free to email me with any queries.
