Tutorial Fellow in Mathematics, Brasenose College
University Lecturer in Pure Mathematics


MMath (Oxford), PhD (Cambridge)

Academic Background and Previous Positions

After reading mathematics at Christ Church, I received my PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2004 and stayed at Christ's College, Cambridge as a Junior Research Fellow until 2006. I held academic positions at the Universities of Sheffield, Nottingham and Queen Mary University of London before returning to Oxford in 2013.

Undergraduate Teaching Areas

First and second year tutorials in pure mathematics, third and fourth year intercollegiate classes in algebra and number theory.

Research Interests

I am interested in applying techniques from algebraic geometry and noncommutative algebra to study problems in representation theory, arising from areas of algebraic number theory such as non-commutative Iwasawa theory and the Langlands programme.

Selected Publications

On irreducible representations of compact p-adic analytic groups, with S.J.Wadsley, Annals of Mathematics 178 (2013) 453-557.

Prime ideals in nilpotent Iwasawa algebras, Inventiones mathematicae 190(2) (2012) 439-503.
