About Me

Since September 2019 I have been a Mathematics PhD student at Queen Mary University of London. I am associated with the algebra and number theory group and my supervisor is Alex Fink. My research interests include tropical geometry, toric varieties and related combinatorial objects. I am also interested in pedagogy, especially as it pertains to science and mathematics.
