I am a lecturer at the School of Mathematics and Statistics at The University of Sydney.

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.
