ANU Science, Health, & Medicine Graduation | Student Speaker address

I was privileged to be the Student Speaker at the graduation ceremony for the class of 2021 in the ANU College of Science and College of Health & Medicine, held on 8 February 2022.

ANU Mathematics Honours | Final Talk

Between January and October 2021, in fulfilment of my Honours degree, I wrote a 90-page thesis entitled 'Invariants in the II1 subfactor theory of von Neumann algebras'. As part of my Honours requirements, I also recorded this video talk summarising part of my thesis. This video was first shown at the (online) ANU Mathematics Honours Conference in November 2021.

ANU Mathematics Honours | Mid-Year Talk

In this talk, I explain the GNS construction, a potent tool in operator algebra theory that can also be viewed as a bridge between formalisations of quantum mechanics.
