I received my DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2012 and held postdoctoral appointments at the Institute for Advanced Study, Perimeter Institute and the University of Oxford, before moving to Durham University in 2017.

My research centres on algebraic, geometric and topological structures in supersymmetric quantum field theory and applications to symmetries and dualities.
