Senior Teaching Fellow

I am an Assistant Professor based partly in Economics and partly in Mathematics. My academic background is in mathematics and my main research interests are in algebra and topology: I completed my PhD in 2004 at Warwick, studying category theory, homological algebra and knot theory. I am currently module leader for EC119 Mathematical Analysis, EC133 Linear Algebra and MA249 Algebra II, a module leader for the MSc introductory maths module, and I help run the Personal Development Module. I am a member of the London Mathematical Society, and a fellow of the Warwick International Higher Education Academy the Warwick Institute for Engagement and the Higher Education Academy.

Research Interests

  • Geometric and algebraic topology, knot theory
  • Homological algebra, category theory
