I work in the Mathematics and Statistics Learning Centre (MSLC), in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne.

Previously, I was a Mathematics Lecturer in the Trinity College Foundation Studies program for The University of Melbourne. I have also been Research Fellow in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University and a postdoc at The University of Oregon. I was a student of Craig Westerland at The University of Melbourne

My research is in algebraic topology. I am particularly interested in anything to do with configuration spaces and braid groups.
