I completed a PhD in theoretical physics at the Perimeter Institute and the University of Waterloo, in Waterloo Canada, under the superposition of Lee Smolin. In my thesis, I helped develop a scale-free description of gravity called Shape Dynamics. Following this, I completed an NSERC Postgraduate Fellowship as a postdoc at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. I then held a Dutch-funded VENI Fellowship as a postdoc in Radboud University in Nijmegen. Both postdoc positions were in Renate Loll’s quantum gravity group, where I continued to develop Shape Dynamics and worked on the Problem of Time with Karim Thébault. I then took a Research Associate position in the Philosophy Department of the University of Bristol where I worked on analogue models of the early Universe. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Philosophy at the University of Groningen on philosophical aspects of cosmology.
