About me

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Heriot-Watt University.

My main research area is geometric group theory, specifically the study of group actions in presence of non-positive curvature. Lately, I have been particularly interested in Artin groups and their geometry.

Between March 2019 and Feburary 2022, I was the Principal Investigator of the EPSRC Project “Geometry of Artin Group Actions” (or GAGA for short).

I am currently a coordinator of the North British Geometric Group Theory research network, together with Laura Ciobanu.

Since February 2024, I am an editor of the Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society (for Algebra - group theory and its generalisations).
