## Background:

I graduated with an MMath (in 2017) and an MSc (in 2019) from the University of Warwick. I am currently studying for a PhD in Mathematics and Statistics as part of the 4-year PhD MASDOC programme.

## Research:

I am interested in PDEs, Applied Mathematics and most recently Numerical Analysis.

Research Study Group: Machine Learning for Image Analysis (webpage)
