I am studying for a PhD in combinatorics under the supervision of Robert Brignall. My research focuses on the growth of permutation classes.

Future Activities 


Prior to beginning my PhD studies, I was a software engineer and development manager with Emtex Ltd. (acquired by Pitney Bowes in 2006) for 11 years, reading papers on combinatorics (and writing one) in my spare time. During the previous ten years, I was a software developer, consultant and trainer for the Summer Institute of Linguistics, based in Papua New Guinea. Before that, I undertook computer science research with GEC, following undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the University of Oxford.


I was responsible for using STACK to create some iCMAs (interactive computer marked assignments) for MST124.
