About Me

I am a first year PhD student studying at the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick, supervised by Graham Cormode and Carsten Maple. I graduated from the Mathematics Institute, University of Warwick, in the summer of 2019 with a BSc in Mathematics. I am a member of the Division of Theory and Foundations where research is concerned with the Design and Analysis of Algorithms, Complexity Theory, Logic, Automata and Formal Verification.


My research area is privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs), specifically Differential Privacy. I am currently working on developing differentially private methods for releasing aggregated multi-dimensional messages.
