I am a Reader in Pure Mathematics in the School of Mathematics and Statistics (SoMaS) at the University of Sheffield.
In the Autumn Semester of 2012-2013, I taught MAS334 Combinatorics. My homepage for MAS334 Combinatorics is here.
In the Spring Semester of 2012-2013, I will co-teach MAS111 Mathematics Core II. The homepage for MAS111 is here.
In 2012-2013 I am supervising two level 4 MMath projects, on Aperiodic Tilings and on Combinatorics of the Symmetric Group.
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, Khairia Mira. M-J Strong completed her Ph.D. thesis with me in 2008, Tony Hignett in 2009 and Laura Stanley in 2011.
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.
Links to the homepages of my coauthors: Francis Clarke, Martin Crossley, Imma Gálvez, Muriel Livernet, Alan Robinson, Constanze Roitzheim, Andrew Stacey.
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.)
