Brief Bio

I was born and raised in the western suburbs of Sydney. In 2009 I moved to Santa Barbara, California, USA for a postdoc, and I met my wife Lianne while there. We moved to Auckland in June 2012 and have lived here since.

Apart from my academic interests, I enjoy singing, playing guitar, motorcycling, skiing, watching sports (particularly cricket), and taking care of our daughter (born July 2018) and pets.
