Director of Studies

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

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

I chair the School's UG Disciplinary panels.

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

My Office Hour is Tuesday, 1.30 -2.30. I am happy, though, for you to make an appointment, preferably by email, to see me at any time I am free.

A very provisional second semester timetable. Second Semester

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.


 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.
