I am a lecturer at the University of Edinburgh. Previously I was a lecturer at the University of Zurich, postdoc at the University of Geneva, MPIM Bonn and Oxford. Before that I was a graduate student of David Ben-Zvi at UT Austin.

My interests lie at the intersection of representation theory, algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. Currently I am interested in problems involving quantum groups, derived Poisson structures and supersymmetric field theories (see the Research page for more information).

Curriculum Vitae.

In my free time I like to play piano.

PhD students:

  • Artem Kalmykov (2017-2021): Geometric and categorical approaches to dynamical representation theory, link.

  • Patrick Kinnear (2020-), joint with David Jordan.

  • Theodoros Lagiotis (2021-).

  • Šarūnas Kaubrys (2021-), joint with Ben Davison.
