I am a PhD student studying loop equations at the University of Melbourne with Peter Forrester and Paul Norbury.
I started looking at random matrix theory in 2013 as part of the University of Melbourne's vacation research scholarship, and then participated in a similar program with AMSI the next year. My masters thesis was on the moments of the Laguerre Beta ensembles, where I learned to apply the loop equation formalism to random matrices. After my masters, I joined ACEMS as a research assistant to continue this line of research with Peter Forrester, before starting my PhD on loop equations in a more general setting.
I have done a large amount of coursework in (mathematical) physics and pure mathematics, and have taught my fair share of undergraduate mathematics.
