### Research

I am interested in the interaction between algebra and geometry, particularly when there is a group action. Often this is described using the representation theory and cohomology of groups. At the moment I am particularly interested in profinite groups and in group actions on rings and varieties.

If you are interested in postgraduate study at Manchester, please feel free to contact me.
