About

I am currently postdoctoral research at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, Bonn. Also a guest of the Hausdorff Institute for Mathematics, as part of the Periods in Number Theory, Algebraic Geometry and Physics trimester program.

Postgraduate

In 2016, I completed my PhD in the maths department of Durham university, supervised by Dr Herbert Gangl. My thesis focused on finding new identities and relations on multiple zeta values, and multiple polylogarithms by using coproducts and related algebraic objects attached to (motivic) MZV's and MPL's. Like Herbert, a large part of my work has a computer-experimental basis.

More details about this work is available on my thesis page.

Undergraduate

Before my PhD, I completed my MMath at Durham in 2012. My fourth year project was on Primes of the form \( x^2 + ny^2 \), supervised by Dr Jens Funke. The project involved understanding how Class Field Theory can be used to derive conditions describing which primes can be represented by a given quadratic forms. See more details about my project, including the written work.

I was invited to present a poster for the project at the Durham Rising Stars 2012 Symposia.

The project was entered into the 2012 SET awards, where it made it through to the final three shortlist for mathematics, but ultimately did not win.
