In the Autumn Semester of 2013-2014, I will teach MAS334 Combinatorics. My homepage for MAS334 Combinatorics is here.
In the Spring Semester of 2013-2014, I will be teaching strand 1 of MAS111 Mathematics Core II and the second part of MAS435 Algebraic Topology.
In 2012-2013 I supervised two level 4 MMath projects, on Aperiodic Tilings and on Combinatorics of the Symmetric Group. In 2013-14 I will be offering three level 4 project topics: Discrete geometry, Integer partitions and Integer valued polynomials.
My field of research is algebraic topology. Here is my publication list.
Andrew Stacey worked with me as an RA on an EPSRC funded project on stable and unstable operations in higher K-theory. He is now in Trondheim, Norway.
Constanze Roitzheim worked with me as an RA funded by an EPSRC grant, held jointly with Andy Baker of the University of Glasgow. The project was "Rigidity Theorems in Stable Homotopy Theory". She is now based in Kent.
I currently have one Ph.D. student, Shadman Kareem. Two further Ph.D. students will be starting with me in September 2013. M-J Strong completed her Ph.D. thesis with me in 2008, Tony Hignett in 2009, Laura Stanley in 2011 and Khairia Mira in 2012.
General information for prospective graduate students is available. If you are interested in doing a Ph.D. with me, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Here are slides from some talks I have given. (I mostly give blackboard talks, so this is a random selection where I happened to use slides.)
"On the KU_(p) local stable homotopy catgeory", Conference on The Arithmetic of Structured Ring Spectra, Rosendal, Norway, August 2005.
"Stable and unstable operations in mod p cohomology theories", Complex cobordism in homotopy theory: its impact and prospects, (the Ravenel & Wilson birthday conference), Johns Hopkins, March 2007.
Here is a slide version of a beamer talk on Elliptic Cohomology at the Durham Prospects in Mathematics Meeting in December 2006.
Conferences and Seminars
I maintain the British Topology conference page.
Transpennine Topology Triangle. This is a joint topology seminar with vertices at Leicester, Manchester and Sheffield. I am the grant-holder.
