I am a post-doctoral research fellow working with Prof. Pierre-Antoine Absil on adaptive methods for optimisation on manifolds. My research focus is on computation arising in data-oriented applications, in particular, non-convex optimisation for inverse problems, such as Robust PCA, compressed sensing, and matrix completion.

I completed my PhD in the Numerical Analysis Group at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Prof. Jared Tanner, where I worked on low-rank plus sparse matrix sensing with applications in multispectral imaging and remote sensing.
