I am a member of ACiD, the Algorithms and Complexity research group, and of the NODES Research and Training Centre. ACiD is part of AlgoUK, a network for algorithms and complexity in the UK. We recently organized an AlgoUK workshop alongside the 35th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science. We also hosted Computability in Europe 2019. We will organize the British Combinatorial Conference in Summer 2021.

My research interests include algorithmic graph theory, combinatorial optimization and combinatorial designs. If you are interested in doing a PhD in these or related areas, please get in touch. Some publications are listed here with links to preprints.
