About me

I joined the department in 2021 as a Guest Teacher, and currently teach on several courses from first to third year. 

I studied for my undergraduate degree from 2011-15 at University College Durham, where I read Mathematics. I continued at Durham for a PhD in Mathematical Physics, graduating in 2020. My research interests are in the use of Clifford Algebra to study Quantum Gravity. A particularly exciting approach I am working on within this is, 'Clifford Analysis', which extends complex analysis to higher dimensional spaces. In particular, the massless Direc equation is the higher dimensional analogue of the Cauchy-Reimann equations. 

For examples of my work, see the pre-prints:



Alongside this, I have interests in the Theology of Science, and in the Philosophy of Physics. In the latter context, I was a visiting researcher in the CPNSS at the LSE in the summer of 2023. In my spare time I enjoy painting and going on walks.
