Dr Martyn Parker

Currently teaching: Mathematical Methods (ST208), Probability A (ST111) and Probability B (ST112)

My research background is equivariant dynamical systems. This field studies how geometric considerations restrict and influence the behaviour of physical systems. In more mathematical terms, I consider how algebraic structures, like groups and more general groupoids, can be used to study differential equations. These techniques have applications in many different physical sciences; for example, it helps us understand different animal gaits (basically, how animals move around) in biology.
I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA), a Fellow of the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (FIMA), a Chartered Mathematician (CMath).
