I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham. I previously held positions at the University of York, Durham University and the University of Glasgow. I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Leicester under the supervision of Prof. John Hunton and Prof. Alex Clark.
I love teaching Mathematics, which is the focus of my work in Nottingham. My mathematical interests are in the field of Aperiodic Order, particularly of invariants of aperiodic patterns defined via tools from Algebraic Topology and Dynamical Systems. I am also interested in properties of cut and project sets, especially as a bridge between their geometric recurrence properties and the field of Diophantine Approximation, a branch of Number Theory which concerns how well rational numbers can approximate real numbers.
I was previously an organiser of the Glasgow Anaylsis Seminar. With Dan Rust, I organised the 2018 Model Sets and Aperiodic Order Conference. With Henna Koivusalo I organised a special session on Tiling Spaces at the 36th Summer Topology Conference at the University of Vienna, 18-22 July 2022. I am a member of the London Mathematical Society.
I enjoy being involved in mathematical outreach and am Outreach Officer for the School of Maths at Nottingham University. Within this role I often work in collaboration with the AMSP.
