Publications and preprints


My research is in combinatorics, more specifically in extremal graph theory, particularly relating to hypergraphs and directed graphs.

I was awarded a PhD from the University of Birmingham in 2010 for my thesis titled "The regularity method for directed graphs and hypergraphs", which was supervised by Deryk Osthus and co-supervised by Daniela Kühn.

Together with Daniela Kühn and Deryk Osthus I organised a workshop on Probabilistic methods in Graph Theory, which was held in March 2012; follow the link for the workshop website.


Since moving to Birmingham, I have lectured the following courses: Students taking these courses should see the course pages on Canvas for lecture notes, examples sheets and so forth.
