My research lies at the intersection of general relativity, differential geometry and hyperbolic PDEs. I am very interested in studying PDEs derived from theories of higher dimensional gravity, string theory, particle physics and cosmology. My contact details are email@example.com.

Other maths projects
- I wrote a 2 page summary of my Kaluza-Klein paper for the UoE School of Maths Postgraduate Research Student Essay Prize.
- In my first year MIGSAA project I showed the non-linear stability of dimensional Minkowski spacetime for (up to some finer points regarding initial data).
- In my Part III essay in 2014 I generalised the proof of local well-posedness of BSSN to high dimensions, for . This was actually not known before then.
