16 Aug 2022 - I am pleased to share that I will be commencing a PhD in mathematics at Stanford University in September.

8 Feb 2022 - I was honoured to receive my degree certificate and University Medal at an in-person graduation ceremony. I also had the privilege of being the Student Speaker and addressing the graduating cohort of students in the College of Science and the College of Health & Medicine. In my address, I highlighted the importance of using scientific skills to question and investigate not only the natural world but also our society and institutions. You can listen to my speech here.

4 Jan 2022 - I'm excited to announce that I have been awarded a University Medal for my thesis, Invariants in the II1 subfactor theory of von Neumann algebras.

About me

I am a PhD student in mathematics at Stanford University. I am chiefly interested in analysis, but also in geometry, mathematical physics, and probability.

I hold a bachelor's degree with a major in mathematics, First Class Honours, and a University Medal, from the Australian National University (ANU). In 2021, I wrote my Honours thesis under the supervision of Dr. James Tener on the topic of II1 subfactor theory, an area of operator theory. You can find a digital copy here.

I also have a side interest in quantum computing. During my undergraduate studies, I worked on two projects in quantum computing; you can see my work here. In February-July 2022, I worked for Quantum Brilliance, an Australian-German quantum computing hardware company.

I also write about popular science and mathematics. I've written for student newspapers such as Woroni and The Varsity. In 2021, I wrote a regular column called 'Next Week in the Future' for Woroni. You can read my articles here.

I grew up in Canberra, Australia's 'bush capital', where I also attended university.
