About me:

I am a fourth year PhD student in geometric group theory under the supervision of Saul Schleimer. Before coming to Warwick I was at Imperial College London for my masters and at the University of York for my Bachelors. For my dissertation at York I worked on a proof of the van Kampen theorem using covering spaces, while at Imperial I worked on generalising some Dehn filling results in torsion free relatively hyperbolic groups to relatively hyperbolic groups possibly with torsion.

Research interests:

My general research revolves around the classes of one-relator groups and graphs of free groups. Within this realm, I mainly think about hierarchies, hyperbolicity, the conjugacy problem and the efficiency of the word problem. I am also interested in compression and its applications to computational questions in groups.

My work:


One-relator hierarchies

The fully compressed subgroup membership problem

On the intersections of finitely generated subgroups of free groups: reduced rank to full rank


I am putting together a database of one-relator groups. Info and a downloadable copy can be found hereLink opens in a new window.
