I am a PhD student in computational group theory at the School of Mathematical
Sciences at Queen Mary,
University of London. My supervisor is Charles R. Leedham-Green.
Since my research is interdisciplinary, a mixture of mathematics and
computer science, I have a secondary supervisor, Pengwei Hao at the Department of Computer Science.
More specifically, I work on the matrix recognition project, in which we
try to develop efficient algorithms for computing with matrix
groups over finite fields, where the groups are given by a set of
generators. The aim is also to make practical implementations of all
the algorithms, primarily for the Magma system, but possibly
also for the GAP system.

Software
I have produced some software packages for Magma and GAP that deal with matrix
groups. Hopefully they will all at some point be included in the main Magma and GAP
distributions, but until then they can be found here.
