I am currently enrolled in the CHOOSEMATHS Mentor's programme (organised by AMSI).


Research bites from SRAP: 'Searching for structures in random sets of integers' - Instituto Cervantes, Sydney (October 2017).

I collaborated with the UNSW Mathematics Enrichment Club.

The club runs as an extra-curricular event at several Sydney schools, to encourage mathematical understanding and appreciation among students, but everyone can join in by working through the weekly problem sheets.
