I am a third year PhD student, under the supervision of Dr Andrew Rice. Tripos. I am a member of Gonville & Caius College.

I have previously studied the Computer Science Tripos, including Part III.


For my Part II Project, I worked with Dr Kathryn Gray to build a compiler with parallel extensions to Standard ML, based on Ypnos. [pdf]

I implemented persistent grants in the Xen blk{front/back} drivers. [link]. This was upstreamed by Roger Pau Monne (0a8704a51f386cab7394e38ff1d66eef924d8ab8).



I currently supervise Algorithms and Compiler Construction.

Please see my supervisions page for information on supervisions.


I currently tick ML, Programming in Java, and Further Java.
