J.L. Doob Research Assistant Professor,

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

I'm a post-doc the algebraic geometry group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I'm interested in geometric representation theory, especially chiral and factorization algebras; I also study moduli stacks of Higgs bundles.

In July 2019, I will move to the University of Sydney, where I will be a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics, supported by Geordie Williamson.

I completed my DPhil in 2015 at the University of Oxford. I was supervised by Kobi Kremnitzer, and supported by an NSERC post-graduate scholarship and by the Churchill Society of Edmonton. From 2015 to 2016, I was a junior research fellow in geometry and representation theory, also at the University of Oxford, supported by EPSRC.

I have an MSc in mathematics from the University of Toronto, where I worked with Dror Bar-Natan and Joel Kamnitzer. Before that, I studied math and linguistics at the University of Alberta.
