I am currently an EPSRC postdoctoral fellow at the University of Cambridge, and Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College. I was a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London, supervised by Kevin Buzzard.


I am lecturing a Part III course on Modular Forms in Lent term 2014. The homepage for the course is here.


I am interested in algebraic number theory, particularly (p-adic) automorphic forms and Galois representations.

Papers and preprints:

  • Geometric level raising for p-adic automorphic forms
    Compositio Mathematica, 2011 Arxiv preprint, Journal version
    Some minor corrections can be found in the paper ‘Level raising for p-adic Hilbert modular forms’ listed below — these should be merged into the Arxiv version at some point in the future.

  • Level raising and completed cohomology
    IMRN, 2011 Arxiv preprint, Journal version

  • Completed cohomology of Shimura curves and a p-adic Jacquet-Langlands correspondence
    Mathematische Annalen, 2012 Preliminary version (needs updating), Journal version

  • An appendix to "Universal coefficients for overconvergent cohomology and the geometry of eigenvarieties" by David Hansen
    Arxiv preprint

  • Serre weights and Shimura curves
    Preprint version, to appear in Proceedings of the LMS.

  • Level raising for p-adic Hilbert modular forms
    Preliminary version.
