I’m a PhD student in mathematics, formerly at CUNY Graduate Center in New York, now at Queen Mary University in London. My supervisor is Prof. Peter Cameron; I am currently researching graph and matroid polynomials, but have wide mathematical interests; specifically anything algebro-combinatorial.
When not doing maths (or putting off doing maths by writing a blog about doing maths) I like to cook, make sourdough bread, run, walk, attempt to make wine from things I forage whilst walking and running, and generally appreciate nature. Before mathematics I studied music, and I still play the piano as often as possible.
A couple of years ago I also set up a small company called Trung Dong Coffee Co., selling Vietnamese coffee. If you haven’t tried Vietnamese coffee (especially Trung Nguyen) then I can’t recommend it highly enough! Unfortunately running a business has recently turned out not to be very compatible with an academic lifestyle (people apparently prefer their coffee-sellers to be in the same country as them most of the time), so this has recently been put on hold.
