Henry Bradford

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Mathematisches Institut of Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, working in the research group of Prof. Harald Andrés Helfgott.

My research interests lie in asymptotic group theory, and include constructions of expander Cayley graphs, diameters of groups, constructions of short laws, random walks on groups and residual finiteness.

Read my CV here.

I completed my DPhil at the University of Oxford in 2015, under the supervision of Prof. Marc Lackenby. Read my thesis here.
