Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the intersection of dynamical systems, ergodic theory and hyperbolic geometry.  My current research focuses on decision and computational complexity problems associated to infinite-state systems and dynamical systems.

As a PhD student I studied asymptotic counting problems related to free groups.  In joint work with Richard Sharp, we established asymptotics for non-trivial conjugacy classes in free groups; for example, an orbit counting asymptotic for free groups acting on trees.


I completed my PhD in Mathematics, working under the supervision of Professor Richard Sharp, at the University of Warwick.  After my PhD I taught in the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol. In June 2018 I joined the Department of Computer of Science at the University of Oxford as a postdoctoral research associate.
