My research

My research lies at the intersection of mathematics and computation. The research area is called 'computational complexity' and the goal is to understand the inherent difficulty of computational problems. I am particularly interested in understanding the mathematics underlying algorithms for counting and for randomly sampling.

My journey

My husband and I work in the same department, which has made it relatively easy to organise childcare. Instead of having a nanny, we have used after-school clubs and holiday playschemes. The type of work that we do (proving theorems, writing papers), can easily be done anywhere, at any time, and this flexibility has been helpful.
