I am a PhD student in the probability group in the Department of Mathematics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. My supervisors are Asaf Nachmias and Omer Angel. Previously, I completed my BA and MMath at King's College, Cambridge. In the autumn of 2017 I will return to Cambridge to take up both a Herchel Smith Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics and a Junior Research Fellowship in Trinity College.

I was an intern in the Microsoft Research Theory Group in the summers of 2015 and 2016 under the mentorship of Ander Holroyd and Yuval Peres, and will be returning to Microsoft for a third internship in the summer of 2017. I am also a Microsoft Research PhD Fellow.

Probability: planar graphs, circle packing, random graphs, maps, and other structures, random walk, spanning forests, percolation, probability on groups, random permutations.
