About me

I currently work as a researcher at SW7 Group in London, where I think about graphs, combinatorial optimisation, algorithms, and life.

I obtained my PhD from the University of Warwick under the supervision of Prof Daniel Král'.

Before that I did Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at the University of Cambridge, specialising in Combinatorics and Number Theory. Before that I was an undergraduate at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge. You can find a copy of my CV here.

Here is a list of events I have attended, including upcoming events.

Research

My interests lie mainly in the area of extremal combinatorics. In the past I have looked at ways to decompose the edge set of a given graph into small or sparse subgraphs, limits of combinatorial objects and their applications to extremal problems, and graph tilings in various settings.

Organised events

I am currently organising a novelty workshop called Young Researchers in Combinatorics which has been postponed to July 2022. An online mini-workshop took place in the week of 20-24 July 2020.
