About Me

I am a mathematician, and mathematics student who loves sharing my love of Maths with anybody who will listen.

I am currently studying for an MSc in Mathematics, at Kings College London, having completed my BA in Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge. I am hoping to start a PhD next year, in additive combinatorics and analytic number theory.

I have spoken at many events and schools all around the UK, from London to Edinburgh, and have even given a talk in Prague. I give talks for Maths Inspiration (and was the youngest Maths Inspiration speaker ever, by several years), and Maths in Action. I have also been involved with the Royal Institution Maths Masterclasses.

I regularly write mathematical articles, and am on the official blog team for Heidelberg Laureate Forum. I am also a member of the team behind Chalkdust Magazine!
