PhD Student in Pure Mathematics

University of Cambridge


I am a PhD student of Dr Stuart Martin’s at the University of Cambridge. I study modular representation theory - the actions of algebraic structures on vector spaces in finite charactersitic.

In my spare time, I am an archer and enjoy coding.

The Modular Temperley-Lieb Algebra

We determine the decomposition numbers for $TL_n$ over arbitrary rings, as well as the dimensions of all simple modules. We obtain these results from diagramatic principles, without appealing to realisations of $TL_n$ as endomorphism algebras of $U_q(\mathfrak{sl}_2)$ modules.
