I am a Research Associate in the FATA section at University of Glasgow. Previously, I was at the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge, and before that, I was a PhD student at Indiana University Bloomington.


I study the mathematical foundations of computation, through an algebraic lens. My research spans programming languages, type theory, category theory, logic, semantics, constructive mathematics, and formalisation.
