Student Supervision

My research interests lie at the intersection of abstract algebra (typically groups) and combinatorics (typically graphs and/or finite geometries), that is, I like considering finite combinatorial objects through the lens of groups and groups through the lens of combinatorics. If you have interest in independent study and/or a potential research project, email me!
