Administration

Director of Studies

I consider requests by students to interrupt or repeat their studies.

I chair the Department's Mitigating Circumstances panel and Appeals panels and

I chair the Department's UG Disciplinary panels.

I also chair and am a panel member of Disciplinary panels at both the Faculty and University level.

Teaching

For 2019-20 I will be teaching MATH20101, Real Analysis, MATH20132, Calculus of Several Variables and MATH6\41022, Analytic Number Theory.

Courses I have taught in previous years which you might find interesting.

Research

 A few Gaussian Primes

Analytic Number Theory with special interest in the "geometric" distribution of ideals in number fields and, in particular, the distribution of Gaussian primes in the plane. The (almost certainly false?) conjecture in this area is that one can walk from the origin of the plane out to infinity with steps of bounded length stepping only on the Gaussian primes.
