I am a Teaching Fellow at the University of Birmingham School of Mathematics. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Algebra at the University of Seville, working with Fernando Muro. Before that, I was at Lancaster University, where I was an EPSRC Senior Research Associate, earlier a London Mathematical Society Early Career Fellow, and even earlier, a PhD student supervised by Andrey Lazarev, graduating in August 2021. Here is my thesis.

Research Interests: I am interested in homotopical and homological algebra, and their applications to related areas such as category theory, representation theory and derived deformation theory. Specific things I have worked on include: Koszul duality and pro-representability, Hochschild (co)homology of dg categories, derived categories, model category structures, homotopy algebras.
