I completed a DPhil at the University of Oxford in 2012 and held postdoctoral appointments at Institute for Advanced Study, Perimeter Institute, and University of Oxford. I was appointed Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences in 2017, becoming Associate Professor in 2020 and Professor in 2023.

My research focusses on quantum field theory and categorical symmetry. I lead research team supported by an EPSRC Fellowship and the Simons Collaboration on Global Categorical Symmetries. I am an organiser of the Symmetry Seminar.
