# Homepage of David Ward

I am a former PhD student at the University of Manchester, and during my PhD I was under the supervision of Peter Rowley. My research area is finite group theory, although I am also interested in combinatorial methods and graph theory.

So far the research undertaken during and after my PhD has resulted in the following papers:

My PhD thesis is available here.

I have also spoken at the following conferences:

## Darstellungstheorietage and Nikolaus Conference 2013

The Darstellungstheorietage and Nikolaus Conference 2013 was held at RWTH Aachen from Thursday 5th - Saturday 7th December 2013. During the Nikolaus Conference, I had the privilege of giving a 20-minute talk titled *Conjugate p-elements of Full Support that Generate the Wreath Product Cp wr Cp*. Slides and details of the talk can be found below:

## Postgraduate Group Theory Conference 2013

The PGTC 2013 was held at the University of Manchester between Tuesday 2nd and Thursday 4th July 2013. I gave a talk on 𝜋-Product Involution Graphs in Symmetric Groups (the contents of which later became the preprint above).
