##### About

I am a second-year PhD student studying analytic and probabilistic number theory under the supervision of Professor Adam Harper. My research thus far has primarily focused on the study of random multiplicative functions. I also currently organise the Warwick Junior Number Theory Seminar.

I previously completed my MSci in Mathematics at University College London. During my 4th year, I completed a project titled 'Exploring recent developments in gaps between prime numbers' under the supervision of Dr Ian Petrow.
