About me


I am a postdoc in the number theory group at Kings College London, specialising in arithmetic geometry, having completed my DPhil in the University of Oxford under the supervision of Minhyong Kim. My specific research interests lie in applications of motivic fundamental groups to Diophantine geometry.

Outreach with UKMT

I also do a lot of volunteering for the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust, a charitable organisation providing mathematics enrichment for bright under-18s. As well as helping set and mark the British Mathematical Olympiads, I regularly teach at various summer schools and occasionally take teams of students abroad to international competitions.

You can find out more about the UKMT on their website, or the Olympiad subtrust website.
