About me:

I am a first year Ph.D student, supervised by Prof. Ian Melbourne and Dr. Hendrik Weber. My MSc thesis involved showing a central limit theorem for a dynamical system with smooth L^\infty observables that undergo weak polynomial mixing.

As part of my MSc, I was involved with the large deviations research study group, supervised by Dr. Stefan Adams and Dr. Roger Tribe. We investigated thermodynamic limits and large deviations for wetting and pinning problems relating to height fields distributed under Gibbs measures in (1+1)-dimensions. The website we produced can be found here.

Current research interests:

I am interested in smooth ergodic theory. In particular, showing central limit theorems for dynamical systems under extremely mild mixing assumptions with an aim to apply to deterministic homogenisation.
