My interests are in the combinatorics and representation theories of diagrammatic algebras (for example symmetric groups, KLR algebras, and partition algebras). 

I am a lecturer at the University of Kent.  I currently have a PhD student, Dimitris Michailidis who is working on constructing bases of simple modules of KLR algebras.

Before this, I had a research fellowship from Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 at City University of London and had a postdoc with Eric Vasserot at Paris 7.  I completed my PhD at Corpus Christi College Cambridge in 2011.
