I'm an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the City University of New York (City Tech). I did my undergraduate degree at Imperial College London and my doctorate at the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Peter M. Neumann.
When I finished my doctorate, I decided I'd work in finance to clear my student loans, so for four years (2005 until 2009) I worked for a large European investment bank, first as a quant and then as a derivatives trader. I found trading to be significantly less exciting than proving theorems, and so in 2009 I resigned from the bank to begin my academic career.
From 2010 until 2012 I held a Philip T. Church Postdoctoral Fellowship at Syracuse University, and in 2013 I was awarded an Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) by the Australian Research Council.
My research lies in the intersection of group theory, combinatorics and topological group theory. I'm particularly interested in infinite permutation groups which act on locally-finite graphs, and compactly generated totally disconnected locally compact topological groups. A list of my publications can be found on this website.
