About me

I am a lecturer at the University of Sheffield and a member of the Sheffield Algebraic Geometry group.

I defended my PhD in June 2011 under the supervision of Andrei Suslin at Northwestern University.

During the academic years 2011-13 I was a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, University of Bonn, the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics and the University of Mainz.

In 2013-14 I was a Whittaker postdoc at the University of Edinburgh.
