Cornell University Australian National University


In Spring 2017 I co-organised the Cornell maths graduate seminar (Olivetti club).


In 2014, I completed my honours year at the Australian National University under the supervision of Anthony Licata. A copy of my honours thesis on current algebras, categorification and annular Khovanov homology, can be found here. Together with Hilary Hunt, Tony Licata and Scott Morrison, I contributed to a note on computing annular Khovanov homology.

I spent the 2015-2016 academic year completing a master's degree at Université Paris 13 and Université Paris 7. In 2016 I wrote my final dissertation on geometric representations of graded and rational Cherednik algebras under the supervision of Eric Vasserot.


In April 2017 and April 2018 I was one of the workshop leaders at Cornell's Expanding Your Horizons, running activities in topology.
On November 4th and November 11th 2017 I will be running the Math Explorers' Club, on groups and symmetry.
In Fall 2018 I am co-teaching a mathematics workshop through the Cornell Prison Education Program.
In November and December 2018 I am teaching a course in Knot Theory at Ithaca High School.
