I received my PhD in mathematics from the Australian National University in December 2010, where I wrote my dissertation under the supervision of Rick Loy.

I spent the first part of 2011 working part-time on a research project computing some isomorphic invariants of Banach spaces, supported by a Lift-Off Fellowship from the Australian Mathematical Society. I then spent the last four months of 2011 as a postdoctoral researcher in the Laboratoire de Mathématiques de Besançon (UMR 6623, CNRS) at the Université de Franche-Comté, in Besançon, France. I have since returned to Australia, where I spend much of my time raising my children. I plan to stay active in mathematical research and hope to return to academia in the future.

My research interests are in functional analysis. My research is concerned with the geometry of Banach spaces, operator ideal theory and Banach algebras of operators on Banach spaces. I am interested in many aspects of these topics, though to date most of my research has focussed on the use of ordinal indices to study these areas of analysis. I also have an ongoing general interest in learning more about connections between Banach space theory and other areas of mathematics.
