A little bit about me. I am a Lecturer of Mathematics at the University of Lancaster interested in automorphic forms and Galois representations, but often dabbling with more concrete things such as lattices, quadratic forms, algebraic codes and integer valued polynomials.
I was awarded my Masters degree at the University of Sheffield in 2011 and stayed in Sheffield to complete my PhD in 2015, under the supervision of Dr Neil Dummigan. My thesis, "Level p paramodular congruences of Harder type" explores specific Eisenstein congruences, as predicted by Harder, between Hecke eigenvalues of Siegel paramodular cusp forms and elliptic cusp forms. From then until 2022 I was a Heilbronn Research Fellow at the University of Bristol.
In my spare time I like to play the baritone/euphonium. I have played in brass bands for most of my life and have thoroughly enjoyed my experiences, both socially and competitively!
