I am currently a senior lecturer at the Queen Mary University of London. Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Warwick and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (AEI) and lecturer at The University of Queensland. I completed my PhD at the Australian National University under the supervision of Professor Ben Andrews. My research interests are geometric analysis and differential geometry. My research focusses on geometric flows, particularly the Ricci flow, mean curvature flow and the Willmore flow, as well as conformal immersions of surfaces. I also have a strong interest in partial differential equations in particular the Allen-Cahn equation and the Ginzburg-Landau equation and their relationship to differential geometry and phase transitions.  

I am currently the organiser of the QMUL Geometry and Analysis seminar. Details can be found at the departmental webpage. I also co-organise the QMUL geometric analysis seminar. In this seminar, we discuss research level topics appropriate for beginning PhD students in geometric analysis. If you wish to be added to the mailing list for this seminar, please email me at

Recently I was awarded a grant from the EPSRC "Geometric Flows and the Dynamics of Phase Transitions". This grant will run for three years from 1 December 2023 to 30 November 2026. Further information can be found here.

Previously I was awarded (together with Reto Buzano) a grant from the EPSRC  “Advances in Mean Curvature Flow: Theory and Applications". This grant ran from 1 January 2019 until 30 September 2022. Further information can be found here.
