About Me

I am a recent graduate from the University of Bristol, and a postgraduate student at the University of Oxford. My key academic interests lie within abstract algebra (particularly group theory), combinatorics, and theoretical computer science.

I plan to begin a PhD in 2021, and I am currently searching for a supervisor.
