I am a Heilbronn Research Fellow in Probability at the University of Bristol. My main area of research is in interacting particle systems and exploring their links to other areas of maths such as combinatorics and algebra.
I recently completed my PhD at the University of Bristol under the supervision of Dr Márton Balázs. My thesis, "Blocking Measures for Interacting Particle Systems", focuses on the blocking family of particle systems and using the stationary measures for such processes to give probabilistic proofs for combinatorial identities as well studying the behaviour of second class particles under blocking measures.
In my spare time I like to dance modern jive and enjoy a pub quiz.
Currently, I co-organise, with Benjamin Lees, the University of Bristol probability seminar. I also co-organise, with Benjamin Lees, Leonardo Rolla, Vedran Sohinger and Sasha Sodin, the Bristol, Warwick and Queen Mary online probability seminar.
