Biography

I’m a postdoctoral researcher in theoretical physics. My work focuses on the geometry of string compactifications. At the moment, I’m a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow at the University of Chicago, heading to Sorbonne Université in 2023.

You’ll find more about me at the links above and a few posts on physics, mathematics, Mathematica, and maybe even cooking.

I grew up in the seaside town of Blackpool in the UK and did my undergraduate degree at the University of Oxford. After that, I completed a PhD at Imperial College London before taking up a Junior Research Fellowship at Merton College, University of Oxford. I then moved to the University of Pennsylvania before heading to Chicago.

My work is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 838776.

Interests
