My thesis focuses on vertex operator algebras and more broadly, conformal field theory. I also have research interests in algebra, including representation theory and algebraic geometry, especially in the context of mathematical physics. 

Prior to the Ph.D. I completed a master's in particle physics at Queen Mary, University of London with a thesis on superconformal field theories, and a bachelor's in physics from the University of Warwick, with a research project on semi-leptonic decays.
