My research interests lie largely in finite incidence geometry, algebraic combinatorics, and computation.

My Erdős number is 3 via Lansdown → Bamberg → Cameron → Erdős or via Lansdown → Niemeyer → Seress → Erdős.

I have refereed for the journals Discrete Mathematics and European Journal of Combinatorics.
