I study mathematical aspects of conformal field theories via vertex operator algebras and their representation theory. I'm currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Université Laval working with Michael Lau. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Mathematical Sciences Institute at the Australian National University working with James Tener. Starting in October 2024, I will be a Postdoctoral researcher at the University of Hamburg.

My recent work has investigated the representation theory of logarithmic conformal field theories described by fractional admissible level affine VOAs and their W-algebras. In particular, I'm interested in the techniques known broadly as "inverse quantum hamiltonian reduction." I am also interested in the relationship between VOAs and conformal nets as axiomatic descriptions of conformal field theory; and the VOAs and related structures that arise in higher-dimensional quantum field theories.
