I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Bristol. My research is in Algebraic Geometry and I am primarily interested in the explicit birational geometry of 3-folds.

Previously, I was a JSPS postdoctoral fellow at RIMS, Kyoto University between Nov 2015 and Jul 2017. I obtained my PhD in 2015 at the University of Warwick under the supervision of Miles Reid. I did my undergraduate degree and Part III at the University of Cambridge.

When I was at Warwick I used to help organise a study group with the other Algebraic Geometry postgraduate students.
