ABOUT 
About MeI did my undergraduate degree in mathematics and graduated from the University of York in July 2010. From October 2010 until September 2014 I worked at the university of Leicester as a Graduate Teaching Assistant whilst studying for my PhD under the supervision of Professor Rick Thomas. I have now submitted my PhD thesis and am working as an Elearning teaching fellow in the department of mathematics. Research/InterestsBroadly, I am interested in connections between algebraic structures and computer science and in particular connections between group theory and formal language theory. In terms of research, I have mostly been looking at the word problem of groups and how it behaves as a formal language. Recently I have been looking at natural conditions on formal languages which characterise the word problem. Publications/talks
