I am a first year PhD student in the Analysis & PDE group working on problems at the interface of analysis and geometry. My research primarily concerns the heat equation and spectral geometry.

I completed my undergraduate studies at Durham in 2021. My final year project was on "Shape Optimisation and Spectrum of Laplacian", with a focus on the asymptotic behaviour of optimal domains for Dirichlet eigenvalues under perimeter constraint.
