I am a post doc in the Centre of Australian Category Theory at Macquarie University.
I work on operad-like structures, their higher analogues, and their applications, particularly in topology.

I’m particularly interested in modular operads and other structures described by graphs admitting cycles. Watch this space for more notes on loops and sphere contractions.

I’m also keen on weak (modular) operads, and always interested in thinking about generalised associahedra and their symmetries.


  • Operad Theory (in particular modular operads)
  • Higher (modular) operads
  • Applications in mathematics and beyond


I’m in the process of building a site with more detailed and accessible information on my research. Until then, feel free to take a look at the following:

You can find my cv here.

Please feel free to get in touch if you want to talk about loops, sphere contractions, or anything else related to the topics mentioned above. I’m also keen to hear from others interested in questions of (neuro)diversity and retention in maths.

More soon!
