Reader in Pure Mathematics at the University of Cambridge.

I am interested in Algebraic and Geometric Topology, in particular: moduli spaces, cobordism categories, spaces of manifolds, configuration spaces, mapping class groups, surgery, characteristic classes, K-theory, and applications of homotopy theory to geometry. My short CV and long CV.

I am an editor of the Journal of Topology and the Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society.

I am organising a workshop around the Clay Research Conference at Oxford, 30 September-4 October 2019, with Soren Galatius.

I am organising Manifolds and Groups at Oberwolfach, 9-15 February 2020, with Clara Löh and Thomas Schick.

I am organising Manifolds and K-Theory: the legacy of Andrew Ranicki at ICMS, Edinburgh, 29 June - 3 July 2020, with Clark Barwick, Diarmuid Crowley, and Ulrike Tillmann.
