Outreach & other activities


If you want to contact me in this capacity, feel free to contact me (see the sidebar for details). I’ve enjoyed being part of various public outreach activities in recent years:

Professional Activities


  • 2018: Assistant for the “Student Seminar in Theoretical Physics” course, University of Amsterdam. Covering “Facets of One-Dimensional Physics“, including the Bethe Ansatz, Conformal Field Theory, and Bosonization. I lectured a six hour “crash course” on Conformal Field Theory.
  • 2012-2013: Problems class tutor for C6 Theoretical Physics at the University of Oxford.

Other Stuff

  • I’m an avid reader of fiction, particular favorite authors include Haruki Murakami, Alexandre Dumas and Herman Hesse.
  • I listen to quite a lot of music, especially jazz. My discogs profile can be found here.
  • I like to play squash with friends back in the UK and I jog regularly.
  • I’m originally from the countryside and enjoy getting out into the greenery and hiking. When I lived in NY state, I hiked in the Catskills and the Adirondacks — both of which I really liked. See below for a photo of me at a summit:
