I am a lecturer at the Computational Geometry and Topology Group at The University of Queensland.

My research interests are motivated by the study of manifolds (i.e., surfaces and their higher-dimensional analogues). For this, I use a blend of techniques from mathematical fields such as low-dimensional topology and combinatorics, tools from computer science, such as parameterised complexity theory, as well as practical skills from algorithm design and the development of mathematical software.

In Semester 1, 2016, I will teach the number theory and abstract algebra part of MATH2301: Linear and Abstract Algebra and Number Theory.
