Currently teaching: ST118 Probability 1
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.
Educationally I have worked on a range of national projects involving developing sustainable models for problem-solving in STEM disciplines, how to utilise "learner analytics" in curriculum review, development and digital education in mathematical sciences and encouraging participation in the mathematical sciences. I have presented widely at outreach events.
I am a Fellow of Warwick International Higher Education Academy (WIHEA)Link opens in a new window and am a member of a variety of learning circlesLink opens in a new window.
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) and a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS).
