Research Interests

From 2012-2016 I held a STFC Advanced Fellowship in the Fields, Strings and Geometry Group.
My research is primarily in the investigation of geometric structures which arise in String/M-Theory.

• Supergravity
• Spinorial Geometry
• Classification of Supersymmetric Solutions
• Higher Dimensional Black Holes

Further details about my research can be found on my personal webpage.

Teaching

I currently teach the Manifolds and Topology course (MAT3009) and the Riemannian Geometry Course (MAT3044). All course materials for these are on SurreyLearn

I have previously taught a MSc course in Manifolds at King's College London, a Part III course on Symmetry and Particle Physics and a second year Mathematical Methods course for the Natural Sciences Tripos at DAMTP Cambridge
