I've joined the department in 2021 as a Guest Teacher, and currently teaches the course MA100 and MA212.
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 Quantum Gravity. At the moment, I am looking at a theory called Geometric Algebra, which uses Clifford Algebras to extend Vector Algebra and Vector Calculus to general linear spaces- for example two vectors multiply to give a plane, three multiply to give a (3-) volume, and a (3-) volume divided by a plane gives a vector. I am investigating whether this framework provides new results or clarifications within Hamiltonian theories of gravity, with the long term aim of applying it to Covariant Loop Quantum Gravity.
Alongside this, I have interests in the Philosophy of Physics- particularly questions about the nature of Quantum Reality- and in the Theology of Science. In my spare time I enjoy painting and going on walks.
