I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Cooper Group at the Leverhulme Research Centre for Functional Materials Design, University of Liverpool. My research integrates computational differential and discrete geometry to tackle challenges in materials science and statistical learning. Holding a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Liverpool, with a background in applied mathematics, I focus on the development of geometric methodologies for Crystal Structure Prediction workflows. My research aims to uncover the geometric principles underlying molecular assembly processes and apply these insights to the targeted design of materials. By employing advanced computational techniques, I strive to bridge molecular dynamics and practical applications in material design through purely geometric modeling.
