Matthew is a Postdoctoral researcher in applied algebraic topology at the University of Southampton.


I completed my Mmath degree at the University of Warwick in 2012. My PhD thesis “The cohomology of free loop spaces of homogeneous spaces” was completed at the University of Southampton in 2017 under the supervision of Professor Jelena Grbic. Currently I am working as part of the “Joining the dots” research group at the University of Southampton studying topological data analysis and it applications within machine leaning and other disciplines.
