My interests are in the combinatorics and representation theories of diagrammatic algebras.  This includes "diagram algebras" which arise in classical  invariant theory (partition algebras, Brauer algebras, and the like) and also those which arise in the "higher representation theory" setting (KLR algebras, diagrammatic Cherednik algebras and the like).  

I am a lecturer at the University of Kent.  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.
