About

I'm currently working towards a DPhil in combinatorics at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Alex Scott. Before starting my DPhil in 2017 I did an MMath in Oxford.

My main research interest is extremal combinatorics, and I tend to spend most of my time working on problems that involve hypercubes in some way.
