What I'm doing

My main job is as Director of Operations with the Topos Institute, based in Oxford, UK.

Alongside this, I have some ongoing projects:

  • With various co-authors, I'm trying to understand the homotopical structure of lax versions of sheaves, with a focus on applications to coherent sheaves on holomorphic manifolds.
  • Artur Ekert, Alastair Kay, Chiara Macchiavello, and I are creating an online introductory book about quantum information science: qubit.guide.
  • Sometimes I work on translating various maths papers into English (~/translations) and manage an open-source multilingual mathematical dictionary (~/maths-dictionary).

What I've done

At the end of 2023, I was a visiting researcher at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology working with Artur Ekert on the online introductory resource qubit.guide for quantum information science.

From 2020 to 2023 I was a postdoc: first with Artur Ekert at both the Centre for Quantum Technologies and the University of Oxford; and then with Wushi Goldring at Stockholm University.

In 2020, I defended my PhD thesis (HAL:tel-02882140) at the Université d'Aix-Marseille on the subject of twisting cochains in complex geometry and Chern classes of coherent analytic sheaves, supervised by Julien Grivaux and Damien Calaque. During the final year of my PhD, I worked as part of the DerSympApp project at the Université de Montpellier.

In 2016 I graduated with an MMath from the University of Oxford, after having finished my BA in Mathematics there the previous year.
