I am a Lecturer in Mathematics in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Stellenbosch University, South Africa.

My interests include topological quantum field theory (TQFT), gerbes and more generally the interaction between geometry, physics and higher categories.

My hobbies include playing guitar and playing squash and tennis, though not simultaneously.
