I am a Research Associate in the High Energy Physics group of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge, where I am also an affiliate of St John’s College.

Much of my recent work has been concerned with the construction and study of certain quantum mechanical models that provide models of quantum gravity via holography. Such models provide a rich and relatively tractable arena to probe quantum black hole physics. Furthermore, I am interested in the amenability of such models to both classical and quantum simulation.

I am also interested in novel non-Lorentzian approaches to the formulation of particular conformal field theories that lie at the heart of our understanding of string/M-theory.
