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. I am particularly interested in supergravity, spinorial geometry, classifications of supersymmetric solutions  and their geometric properties, and 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
