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.


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.
