Primary position:
Emeritus Professor

Background

The University of Southampton

After obtaining an MA and DPhil from the University of Oxford, I have been employed at the University of Southampton since 1971, and a Professor of Mathematics since 2000. My research interests are mainly in Group Theory and its applications to areas such as Combinatorics, Galois Theory, Geometry and Topology. Current research projects involve dessins d'enfants and Beauville surfaces. I have published about 75 papers and have co-authored three textbooks, on Complex Functions, Elementary Number Theory, and Information and Coding Theory. I am currently working on textbooks on dessins d'enfants and the theory of algorithms. I have supervised about a dozen PhD students.

Administrative responsibilities have included periods as Head of the Pure Mathematics Group and as MMath and Single Honours programme coordinator. This academic year I have taught the modules MATH1010/11 Mathematics for Engineers, MATH2045 Vector Calculus and Complex Variable Theory, MATH3032 Communicating and Researching Mathematics, and have taken tutorials in MATH1048 Linear Algebra I.
