About me

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

Research Interests

My research interests are in probability theory and currently focused on systems of interacting Brownian motions, specifically Dyson Brownian motion or annihilating and coalescing Brownian motions. This has connections to random matrix theory, interacting particle systems 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 applications of probabilistic techniques to fractal geometry.
