I completed my PhD, titled "The Foundations of Infinite-Dimensional Spectral Computations", at the University of Cambridge in September 2020. Following that, I served as a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, for the academic years 2020-2022. During the academic year 2021-2022, I was also a FSMP Fellow at École Normale Supérieure in Paris. My work primarily involves the analysis and development of algorithms in the areas of approximation theory, neural networks, optimisation, inverse problems, solutions to PDEs, and spectral theory.
