I am an Associate Professor and Future Fellow at the Mathematical Sciences Institute of the Australian National University.

My research interests include

- the classification of subfactors, tensor categories, and modular categories
- higher category theory, in particular enriched category theory
- connections between higher category theory and topological phases of matter
- derived topological quantum field theories (TQFTs)
- Khovanov homology and 4d TQFTs
- interactive and automated theorem proving, particularly for category theory

I joined the ANU in 2012 as a Senior Lecturer, with a 'Discovery Early Career Research Award' from the ARC. In 2015, I received both the Christopher Heyde Medal, from the Australian Academy of Sciences, and the Australian Mathematical Society Medal. In 2016 I was promoted to Associate Professor, and in 2018 began an ARC 'Future Fellowship'.

From 2009-2012, I was a Miller Fellow at the UC Berkeley mathematics department During 2007-2009, I was a postdoc at Microsoft Station Q, at UC Santa Barbara.

I completed my Ph.D. in March 2007 at the University of California, Berkeley, studying with Vaughan Jones. My thesis received the Herbert Alexander Prize for Outstanding Dissertation in Pure Mathematics. Before Berkeley, I graduated from the University of New South Wales, Australia, with first class honours and the University Medal in pure mathematics.
