About me
I am a postdoctoral research fellow in pure mathematics at the University of Waterloo. I obtained my PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 2018 under the supervision of Dr. Susan J. Sierra. My thesis was on singularities of noncommutative surfaces. Prior to that, I studied at the University of Bath.

Research interests
I am interested in problems in noncommutative ring theory which are inspired by, or can be studied via, commutative algebraic geometry. Currently, I'm interested in noncommutative invariant theory and elliptic algebras.

Publications and preprints
Actions of Small Groups on Two-Dimensional Artin-Schelter Regular Algebras
Azumaya skew group algebras and an application to quantum Kleinian singularities
Singularity categories of deformations of Kleinian singularities (accepted)

At the University of Waterloo, I have taught the following courses:
MATH 104 - Introductory Calculus for Arts and Social Science (Winter '19)
MATH 235 - Linear Algebra 2 (Fall '18)

At the University of Edinburgh, I was a tutor for the following courses: Calculus and its Applications, Engineering Mathematics, Fundamentals of Pure Mathematics, Group Theory, Number Theory.
