I grew up in Harlesden in north west London, where I attended Aylestone High School (later Aylestone Community School) from 1977-1984. I was an undergraduate at Imperial College, London (BSc Mathematics, 1987) and then moved to Warwick for my postgraduate studies (MSc Mathematics, 1988; PhD Mathematics 1990), where I was supervised by William Parry FRS.
After postdoctoral positions at IHES and Queen Mary, London, and a junior lectureship at Oxford, I was appointed to a lectureship at the University of Manchester in 1995. I remained there as lecturer, senior lecturer, reader and then professor until 2012, when I returned to Warwick as a Professor of Pure Mathematics.
Here is my CV.
Dynamical Systems at Warwick
The Department of Mathematics at Warwick University has an active seminar dedicated to Dynamical Systems.
We also take part in a regular series of collaborative meetings between Bristol University, Exeter University, Leicester University, Loughborough University, Manchester University, Queen Mary University of London, St Andrews University, Surrey University and Warwick University, supported by the London Mathematical Society.
