I graduated from the University of Bath in summer 2020 with a first-class honours Master of Mathematics. Currently I am undertaking my MRes year of an Integrated PhD in Statistical Applied Mathematics at the University of Bath, as part of the 7th cohort of the EPSRC SAMBa CDT.

My Masters dissertation on "efficient priorconditioning for edge enhancement in imaging" was supervised by Silvia Gazzola and Alastair Spence. The project involved the regularization of discrete ill-posed linear inverse problems and employing Krylov subspace methods that adaptively define edge-enhancing encodings between iterates.


My mathematical interests primarily lie in numerical analysis, with a particular focus on inverse problems and large scale optimisation.

I am now beginning the PhD portion of the Integrated PhD and, being supervised by Matthias Ehrhardt and Silvia Gazzola, will be looking into how one may use data to learn the regulariser for a variationally regularised problem.

During my MRes year of the Integrated PhD, I took the following modules:

MA50264: Inter-disciplinary Research Project (IRP) concerning numerical methods for proton therapy treatment planning
MA50246: Student-led symposia and integrative think tanks
Semester 1:
MA40198: Applied Statistical Inference
MA50263: Mathematics of machine learning
MA50183: Reading course on edge-enhancing regularisation methods in imaging
Semester 2:
MA50250: Inverse problems, data assimilation and filtering
MA50251: Applied stochastic differential equations
MA50215: Reading course on spectral theory and its applications



Semester 1: Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations

In Semester 1 of the 2021/22 academic year, I am tutoring two tutorials per week for MA10230 Multivariable Calculus and Differential Equations. The tutored groups are:

Past years

I have previously tutored MA10230 in semester 1 of the 2018/19 and 2020/21 academic years, and MA10265 in second semester of 2020/21.
