I am currently a Research Fellow and Theme Lead at the Leverhulme Research Centre for Functional Materials Design. I am leading the TCS-Chem Subgroup, focused on applying techniques from Theoretical Computer Science (particularly combinatorics on words) to problems originating in Chemistry. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher working on problems in Combinatorics on words, in the Theoretische Informatik group, at the University of Göttingen. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Icelandic Centre of Excellence in Theoretical Computer Science at Reykjavik University studying distributed colouring problems. Prior to coming to Iceland, I was a postgraduate researcher at the Department of Computer Science, in the algorithms and complexity research group. My PhD thesis is titled Algorithmic and Combinatorial Problems in Crystal Structure Prediction, supervised by Prof. Igor Potapov, with secondary supervisors Matthew Dyer and Vladimir Gusev. I was funded by the Leverhulme Research Centre for Functional Materials Design. Previously, I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Glasgow, with my masters project supervised by David Manlove.
