## About me

I am a second year PhD student at the University of Warwick in the MASDOC Centre for Doctoral Training. I am supervised by Jon Warren, Roger Tribe and Oleg Zaboronski.

## Research Interests

My research interests are in probability theory and include coalescing and annihilating Brownian motions, random matrix theory and the KPZ universality class.

## Background

As part of the MASDOC programme, I completed an MsC at the University of Warwick in 2016. Before this, I completed an MMath degree at the University of Oxford in 2015. My final year dissertation was on probabilistic techniques in fractal geometry.
