I'm a theoretical cosmologist and Ph.D. candidate at the Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge (KICC), and the Cavendish Laboratory Astrophysics Group at the University of Cambridge. My research is focussed on gravitational theory and quantum gravity, including modifications to Einstein's general theory of relativity.

I grew up in Cornwall, which is the south-western tip of England. I did my undergraduate and master's in Natural Sciences at Queens' College, Cambridge, and I've been based at Wolfson College during my Ph.D.

Perimeter Institute cosmology seminar

Here is a seminar I gave at PITP recently, which encodes much of my activity over the past few years.
