Research Associate
Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics
Year Joined Homerton: 

I am an EPSRC Research Fellow and an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in mathematics. I study mirror symmetry, a field that studies the mathematical implications of dualities coming from string theory. In particular, I prove theorems that link various disciplines of mathematics such as algebraic geometry, symplectic geometry, number theory, and combinatorics by finding what connections are predicted by string theory.
