About Me

I am a PhD student in the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh, supervised by Prof. Antony Maciocia. In the past I was a software engineer on the compiler team at (formally) Micro Focus (now the AMC division of OpenText Rocket Software ).

I study walls on Bridgeland stability conditions for complexes of coherent sheaves on Picard Rank 1 surfaces and threefolds. This is an area of Algebraic Geometry. At the moment, I'm interested in automating methods for finding walls, find out more about this on the Pseudowalls page.

To find out about the mathematician's tech-skills workshop I'm running for Edinburgh/Herriot-Watt/Glasgow, check out its course page. Make sure to fill out the forms in the launch announcement if wanting to take part.
