## Biography

I am an EPSRC postdoctoral fellow at the University of Glasgow, currently studying dimer models with boundary. More broadly, my research deals with the connections betwen representation theory and geometry, often motivated by combinatorial phenomena appearing in cluster algebras.

I previously held a position in Steffen Koenig's group at the Institut für Algebra und Zahlentheorie at Universität Stuttgart, was a postdoctoral fellow at the Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik, and was a PhD student at the University of Bath, advised by Alastair King. I have also spent two months as a guest of Henning Krause's BIREP group at Universität Bielefeld.

I am one of the administrators of the FDLIST, a mailing list and community for representation theorists with an interest in finite-dimensional algebras, and in particular maintain the list of workshops, conferences and seminars.

For more information, see my personal webpage.

## Research interests

My research deals mainly with connections between representation theory (of quivers and associative algebras) and geometry (algebraic and combinatorial), often motivated by combinatorial phenomena appearing in cluster theory and related areas.
