I am currently a Heilbronn Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, under the mentorship of Mark Hagen. Prior to this, I completed my Ph.D. at the City University of New York Graduate Center; my thesis advisor was Jason Behrstock.

My research is in geometric group theory and low-dimensional topology, with particular focus on cube complexes, braid groups, and hierarchical hyperbolicity. I recently wrote two Python programmes implementing algorithms detailed in my paper on graph braid groups. The code is available on my GitHub page in the ‘graph-braid-splitter’ and ‘graph-braid-presenter’ repositories.

A copy of my research statement is available here.

I am an organiser of the Bristol Geometry and Topology Seminar, alongside Luke Jeffreys and Irene Pasquinelli.

I also recently organised a conference on quotients of hierarchically hyperbolic groups.
