Hey. I'm a maths lecturer at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Brazil. I was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and when it's convenient I'm half Irish. I did my undergrad (in maths) at the University of St Andrews and my PhD (in maths!) at the University of Manchester, where I was supervised by Peter Symonds. After that I spent three years as a Heilbronn Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, and then a year as a post-doc in Brasilia, where I worked with Pavel Zalesski.

I'm an algebraist and more specifically a representation theorist, with two main general lines of interest: modular representations of finite and profinite groups, and representations of finite dimensional and pseudocompact associative algebras. There's a bit more detail in the "Research" section.

My (usually basically up-to-date) CV is on the fantastically convenient Currículo Lattes system, it's here. To get it in English click on "English" near the top.
