  • I am a Professor of Applied Mathematics, having previously held chairs in UMIST and Queen Mary, University of London. The photo is from my talk at the Royal Institution in 2014.

    Recently I have been on Council of the IMA, Nominating Committee of LMS, Royal Society Research Grants Scheme Physical Sciences Board.

    If you are thinking of doing a Ph.D. with me then you should get an application form from our Postgraduate pages. It is also a good idea to email me so that we can talk about what you might do.

    You can find more details of the people I work with and my academic career. Some of my papers (and a list of other papers) are also available. I also have some personal links. Recent papers can be downloaded from the departments eprint server.

I stole this image from Robert Devaney's Fractal Site.
