About Me

I'm a Postdoctoral researcher, working in the Mathematics department at the IMAPP in Nijmegen.

I am interested in Quantum Gravity in all its variations, so far my research has been focused on Causal Dynamical Triangulations, Causal Set theory and non-commutative geometry.

My current research focuses on scaling in quantum gravity, and how discrete systems scale with volume, and most of it is done using computer simulations.

On twitter I go by GravityWithHat, which is alluding to both the hats I use to mark operators in quantum mechanics and the hats I usually wear.
