Modular operads and the mathematics of complex networks

I am a post-doctoral research associate at the Centre of Australian Category Theory (CoACT), Macquarie University. I work in the general area of operad theory, with a focus on modular operads and their foundations. My aim is to develop modular operadic techniques to improve our understanding of complex networks.

I believe that (pure) mathematics can make a significant contribution in the search for enduring solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems. As a working mathematician, it is my responsibility to critically examine my assumptions, practices and institutions, and work to dismantle barriers to participation in mathematical enquiry.
