I am a third year PhD student in the statistics and probability research group, working in probability theory. I am currently under the supervision of Professor Mikhail Menshikov and Dr. Andrew Wade. Alongside with my academic research, I am also a tutor on discrete mathematics and probability courses.

I am also teaching as a one-to-one tutor, helping out at Mathlab. Mathlab is a drop-in center providing a free and confidential service to all students of Durham University and you can find us in Palatine Centre.


My research is in probability theory and its applications. My interests include asymptotic behaviour of near critical system and random graph dynamics inspired by physics or other applications. Some of my recent work has been on random walks on half strips, and the centre of mass of random walks.

Probability in the North-East (PiNE)

A collaboration among researchers interested in probability theory and its applications, based in the North-East of England and South-East of Scotland, sponsored by a Joint Research Groups (Scheme 3) grant from the London Mathematical Society. Past events held in Durham, York, Edinburgh, Leeds and Sheffield.

Northeast Organisation of DiscretE Structures (NODES)

A group of Mathematicians and Computer Scientists from Durham University and Newcastle University with common research interests in discrete structures. Actively foster collaborative links with a view both to real world applications and to engaging in interdisciplinary training and fundamental research.

Research Students' Conference

The RSC is an annual conference that is organised by students, for students. As a result it always has a friendly atmosphere in which inter-institution connections can be made and ideas can be discussed freely. It is an ideal environment in which to present research for the first time before an international audience.

British Mathematical Colloquium

The British Mathematical Colloquium is the largest pure mathematical conference to be held annually in the UK. It has been held every year since 1949, usually around Easter, though some of the earlier meetings were in September.

What is Discrete Mathematics?


European Mathematical Society

The European Mathematical Society is a learned society representing mathematicians throughout Europe. It promotes the development of all aspects of mathematics in Europe, in particular mathematical research, relations of mathematics to society, relations to European institutions, and mathematical education. The EMS has as its members around 60 national mathematical societies in Europe, 40 mathematical research centres and departments, and 3000 individuals.

Royal Statistical Society

The Applied Probability Section came into existence at the start of 2012 to help rejuvenate the Royal Statistical Society's interests in the area. The main activity of the Section is to organise loosely-themed meetings on aspects of applied probability, which we interpret as any use of probability to develop models and results that help us to understand the world around us.

Institute of mathematics & its applications

The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) exists to support the advancement of mathematical knowledge and its applications and to promote and enhance mathematical culture in the United Kingdom and elsewhere, for the public good.

London Mathematical Society

The London Mathematical Society (LMS) is the UK’s learned society for mathematics. Its purpose is the advancement, dissemination and promotion of mathematical knowledge, both nationally and internationally.

Bernoulli Society

The Bernoulli Society organises or sponsors several meetings in the area of mathematical statistics and probability. Organizers of a meeting seeking sponsorship should email their request to the Bernoulli Society Scientific Secretary (see Who is Who in the Bernoulli Society for the email address), giving a short summary of the meeting details including dates. The Scientific Secretary will then ask Bernoulli Society Executive Committee to approve the sponsorship.

Institute of Mathematical Statistics

The purpose of the Institute is to foster the development and dissemination of the theory applications of statistics and probabilitiy.
