I am an Associate Professor in Mathematics at the University of Birmingham. My research interest lies in combinatorics, more specifically in extremal graph theory. I am currently currently supported by the EPSRC grants 'Matchings and tilings in graphs' EP/V002279/1 and 'Ramsey theory: an extremal perspective' EP/V048287/1. From November 2016 to October 2018, I was supported by an EPSRC first grant EP/P002420/1 titled "A graph theoretical approach for combinatorial designs".

Previously, I was a research fellow at the University of Birmingham (working with Prof. Daniela Kühn and Prof. Deryk Osthus) and a postdoctoral fellow at Umea University, Sweden, (working with Docent. Klas Markström). I got my PhD degree at the University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Prof. Andrew Thomason. The title of my PhD thesis is "Cliques in Graphs".

I am currently supervising a PhD student Debmalya Bandyopadhyay. I previously supervised Nicolás Sanhueza-Matamala (2015-19) and Vincent Pfenninger (2018-2022).

Together with Richard Mycroft, Guillem Perarnau and Andrew Treglown we are organising the 27th British Combinatorial Conference at the Univeristy of Birmingham, 29 July - 2 August 2019. In June 2017,

Together with Andrew Treglown and I organised a workshop Interactions with Combinatorics, which was held in June 2017.



I am lecturing 3GphT Graph Theory and 3Com Combinatorics and Communication Theory (Year 3/4).
