I am a first year Mathematics PhD student at the University of Colorado Boulder. My primary areas of mathematical interest are Geometry and Topology. I also hold an interest in Quantum Field Theory, particularly what differential geometry/ topology and (representations of) Lie groups can tell us about this area.
I am currently preparing for my comprehensive exam, under the guidance of Markus Pflaum.
I am from Norfolk, England. While not as rainy as other parts of the UK, I am not used to the almost yearround sunny weather in Boulder!
