Personal profile

Biography

I am a lecturer at the School of Mathematics. Before joining Monash, I was a research associate at The University of Western Australia (where I also completed my PhD) and a lecturer at both Queen Mary University of London and The University of Auckland. 

Research interests

Most of my research concerns finite group theory and various discrete structures, mainly finite incidence geometries. I mainly work in the intersection of these fields, in the sense of finite groups acting on discrete structures, but I am also interested in purely group-theoretic problems (e.g. various questions about finite simple groups, including their representation theory) and purely geometric/combinatorial problems (e.g. the existence of certain kinds of incidence geometries). I also have a background in differential geometry, which was the area of my PhD.
