I am a PhD student working under the supervision of Professor Alexander Ivanov in the Algebra and Algebraic Combinatorics Research Group in the  Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London.

My research interests include Majorana algebras, axial algebras, the Monster group and its subgroups, and algorithms and programs involving any of these topics.

In June 2016, I co-organised the 18th Postgraduate Group Theory Conference. The PGTC is a chance for young researchers in Group Theory and related topics to present and discuss their work in a relaxed environment. In 2018 it will be held at the University of St Andrews . Here is the conference photo from the PGTC 2016.

In April 2016, I competed in Imperial College’s three minute thesis competition. Check out my submission below for a brief introduction to Group Theory and Monstrous Moonshine.

Here is some other stuff that I have been doing for the past couple of years:

  • Oct 2014 – Present: PhD in Pure Mathematics, Imperial College;
  • Oct 2010 – Jun 2014: MSci Mathematics , Imperial College;
  • Jun 2013 – Sept 2013: Summer Research Project, Imperial College;
  • Aug 2012 – Jun 2013: Erasmus Exchange Year, ENS de Lyon, France;
  • Jun 2012 – Aug 2012: Student Vacation Scheme, NetReveal, Detica (now BAE Systems Applied Intelligence).

Outside of maths, I row with Folkestone rowing club and run, cycle and swim with Imperial College triathlon club. Last year, I completed my first triathlon at the BUCS Sprint Championships; read all about it in my race report for the club.
