I am a lecturer at King's College London.


I am interested in algebraic number theory, particularly (p-adic) automorphic forms and Galois representations.

Papers and preprints:

  • Irreducible components of the eigencurve of finite degree are finite over the weight space, with Shin Hattori
    Arxiv preprint.

  • Patching and the completed homology of locally symmetric spaces, with Toby Gee
    Arxiv preprint.

  • Extended eigenvarieties for overconvergent cohomology, with Christian Johansson
    Arxiv preprint.

  • Torsion Galois representations over CM fields and Hecke algebras in the derived category, with Jack Thorne
    Forum of Mathematics, Sigma 2016. Arxiv preprint, journal version.

  • Shimura curves, the Drinfeld curve and Serre weights, with Teruyoshi Yoshida

  • Towards local-global compatibility for Hilbert modular forms of low weight
    Algebra & Number Theory 2015. Arxiv preprint, journal version.

  • Level raising for p-adic Hilbert modular forms

    Some minor corrections to this work can be found in the paper "Level raising for p-adic Hilbert modular forms" listed above.


I lectured Group Representation Theory (M3/4/5P12) at Imperial College London in Spring 2016. The homepage for the course is here.

I lectured a Part III course in Cambridge on Modular Forms in Lent term 2014. The homepage for the course is here.
