I took A-levels in Maths, Physics and Chemistry, followed by a degree in Natural Sciences (Theoretical Physics) at the University of Cambridge and a PhD in Theoretical Physics at the University of Bristol. I joined the Department of Applied Mathematics at Queen Mary as a Lecturer in 1979. I was a Reader in Mathematics from 1989 and Director of Undergraduate Studies in Mathematical Sciences from 2007 until I retired on 1 October 2017. My main interests are various aspects of computing, in particular algebraic computing and web technology. If I have any spare time I like to watch Formula-1 and Wimbledon on television!

Goldsmiths' Company Mathematics Course for Teachers
Every July from 2008 until 2014 I ran a one-week residential maths course for A-level teachers sponsored by the Goldsmiths' Company. The exception was 2012, when all the Queen Mary accommodation was taken by the Olympics. Further details can be found on the course website although the course no longer runs.
