Biography


I completed my PhD degree in 2005, working under supervision of Professor Alan Beardon at the University of Cambridge. I was then a post-doctoral researcher for three years at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, working with Professor Anthony O'Farrell. After that I worked with Professor David Spiegelhalter and Mike Pearson at the University of Cambridge on the Understanding Uncertainty project. In 2010 I obtained a lectureship in mathematics at the Open University, a job that I still hold today.


Research


Broadly speaking, my research is about dynamics, usually but not always within the fields of complex analysis and hyperbolic geometry. I specialise in continued fraction theory and in aspects of the theory of reversible dynamical systems.

I have two research students, Matthew Jacques and Mairi Walker, who both began their research degrees in 2012.

 



Teaching


I'm involved in writing the new modules MST124 Essential mathematics I and MST125 Essential mathematics II. Also, I'm the module chair of the MSc module M829 Analytic number theory II.

I am the postgraduate tutor for the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
