Research interests

My research concerns problems arising in classical General Relativity, but I am more broadly interested in hyperbolic PDE. A lot of my work revolves around the stability properties of Kerr black holes under the Einstein vacuum equations.

About me

I finished my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Cambridge in August 2021 under the supervision of Mihalis Dafermos. Since September 2021, I am an NSF postdoctoral fellow in Mathematics at Princeton, currently in the Princeton Gravity Initiative. I also hold a Junior Research Fellowship position at Trinity College in Cambridge.
