Profile links

I am a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at Lancaster University.

Until August 2015, I was a postdoc at Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster in the Leray Topology Group of Michael Weiss.

Until February 2014, I was a postdoc based at City University London working with Joe Chuang (EPSRC grant: EP/J00877X/1).

I completed my PhD in June 2012.

I am teaching these modules in 2015/16:
I am also supervising a project on continued fractions for MATH390: Project Skills.

Functor calculus workshop

Federico Cantero, Rosona Eldred, Geoffroy Horel, Martin Palmer and I organised a functor calculus workshop that took place in Münster in June 2015.
