Profile

Adam's PhD project is on the `Topological Analysis of Structured Data', supervised by Dr Primoz Skraba, and commenced in September 2021.

Prior to joining QMUL, Adam received their Bachelor of Philosophy with Honours from the Australian National University in 2020. Adam's honours project was titled "The Homology of Periodic Simplicial Complexes and their Quotient Spaces".

Adam's main interests lie in applied topology and geometry, using tools such as persistent homology to understand and characterise qualitative properties of topological space which arise in application. Adam's current work looks at how to characterise the topology of infinite cellular complexes with a high degree of symmetry based on finite approximations. These complexes arise naturally in infinite crystals and molecular dynamics simulations where there is a great deal of translational symmetry in the system.
