Dr Martyn Parker

Currently teaching: Mathematical Techniques (ST116)

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.
At Warwick I am a Fellow of WIHEA and am a member of a variety of learning circles.
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).
