I am a PhD student in the Centre for Particle Theory in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University, working under the supervision of Dr. Stefano Cremonesi. I completed an M. Sci Physics degree from the University of Nottingham in June 2016 and I was awarded the Salmon Prize for the highest achieving M. Sci graduand from the School of Physics and Astronomy. I began my PhD in theoretical particle physics at Durham in October 2016 and I am a member of Ustinov College. I am currently a departmental postgraduate student representative and previously I was both the vice-president and treasurer for the Darts Society during my time at the University of Nottingham.
My research focuses on supersymmetric localization in two dimensions and supersymmetry in curved space. Localization is a powerful technique used in supersymmetric field theories to exactly compute partition functions and correlation functions. My interests lie in quantum field theory and supersymmetry and I am eager to learn more about mirror symmetry. During my master's degree, my third-year project comprised investigating axions "shining light through walls" and I completed my final year project on spontaneous symmetry breaking and the Higgs mechanism.
