Commutative algebra and its interactions with algebraic geometry; invariant theory; separating invariants; applications of invariant theory and commutative algebra; structural and practical identifiability of mathematical models, in particular identifiability and reparametrization of ODE models with time-series or steady-state data.

I attend the Algebra seminar at the University of York.

April 2022: I will speak the Applied Algebra and Geometry Mini-symposium at British Applied Mathematics Colloquium , which I also co-organise. This will also be the 14th meeting for Applied Algebra and Geometry in the UK.

As of September 2018 I am a Lecturer in Algebra in the Department of Mathematics of the University of York. From January 2017 until August 2018, I was a Anne McLaren Fellow in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham. From December 2015 to November 2016, I was a postdoctoral research assistant in the Algebraic Systems Biology group in the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, working with Heather Harrington. I was visiting research fellow in Durham from October 2015 to September 2018, where I was also based geographically since September 2013. From February 2015 to January 2016 I was a LMS Grace Chisholm Young Fellow. Before coming to the UK, I was a research visitor in Heidelberg, Germany for the Summer of 2013. I spent the Spring of 2013 as a postdoc at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute for the second half of the Special Year on Commutative Algebra. From September 2010 to December 2012 I was a postoctoral assistant at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Basel. For the first 2 years, I held a postdoctoral fellowship from the Fonds québécois de recherche sur la nature et les technologies (Fqrnt). I worked in the research group Algebra und Geometrie under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Hanspeter Kraft (now retired). Before that, I was a MATCH postdoctoral fellow. I worked in the Algorithmic Algebra research group of Prof. Dr. B.H. Matzat (now retired). I did my Ph.D. in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. My supervisor was David Wehlau.
