Director of Studies

I chair the fortnightly meetings responding to, and attempting to anticipate, any problems with teaching. I am more than happy to be told of any issues by students, either by seeing me in Rm 1.109 in the Alan Turing Building, emailing me or contacting a Student Representative.

I Chair the School's Mitigating Circumstances panel and Appeals panels and consider requests by students to interrupt or repeat their studies.

For 2017-18 I will be teaching MATH20101, Real Analysis, MATH20132, Calculus of Several Variables and MATH6\41022, Analytic Number Theory.

Courses I have taught in previous years that you might find interesting.


 A few Gaussian Primes

Analytic Number Theory with special interest in the "geometric" distribution of ideals in number fields and, in particular, the distribution of Gaussian primes in the plane. The (almost certainly false?) conjecture in this area is that one can walk from the origin of the plane out to infinity with steps of bounded length stepping only on the Gaussian primes.
