Research Interests:

Foundations of Physics, Point-Free Topology, Spacetimes, Category Theory, Categorical Quantum Theory, Diffeology

After finishing my BSc and MSc in mathematical physics at Radboud University Nijmegen, I joined the University of Edinburgh as a PhD student in 2020, under supervision of Chris Heunen. Here, I've done work on categorical quantum theory, and more recently have been studying spacetimes using point-free topology.
