Interests: Preferential attachment networks, random graphs, algebraic graph theory
Research group: Probability

I took over as the Executive Editor for the Applied Probability Trust in summer 2019. As part of this role I oversee the editorial process, finances and day to day operations for both the Journal of Applied Probability and Advances in Applied Probability.

Research interests:

My Ph.D. thesis was written on the topic of preferential attachment graphs with location. Myself and my supervisor, Dr Jonathan Jordan, proved a number of results on the topics of condensation, coexistence and degree asymptotics. I have been involved in research projects outside of my Ph.D. including work on the cospectrality of graph distance laplacians.

Administrative duties:

School of Mathematics and Statistics Timetabler
School of Mathematics and Statistics Tutor For LGBT+ Students

Working arrangements:

I can usually be found in my office between 10:00 and 18:00 on weekdays. My specific office hours are 11:30-12:30 Tuesdays and Thursdays during the semester. Please do not turn up outside of these times as you will not be seen unless a specific appointment is made via email in advance. I strongly encourage the use of discussion boards for problem sheet questions as other students can benefit from the solutions.
