The best way to contact me during termtime is usually to come to my office hour. My office is room 2.137 in the Alan Turing Building. My office hour in Semester 2 of 2016-17 will be 14:30-15:30 on Fridays (during teaching weeks only); it may occasionally be necessary to vary this but any changes will be advertised here.
In 2016-17 I will be lecturing....
Projects and Research Supervision
I am happy to consider supervising undergraduate projects and MSc dissertations on topics in or near my research areas. Please feel free to contact me to discuss possible projects. For information about PhD and postdoctoral supervision please look here.
CS/Mathematics Joint Programmes
Up to and including the academic year 2014-15, I was programme director in the School of Mathematics for the two joint honours programmes in Computer Science and Mathematics; from 2015-16, Martin Lotz has taken over this role. Andrea Schalk in the School of Computer Science, remains in overall charge of the programme, and is probably your best point of contact for problems with the programme in general or on the CS side. A lot of information can be found on the CM page on the School of Computer Science StudentNet.
In Semester One of 2010-2011 I taught an informal graduate-level introduction to semigroup theory, aimed primarily at staff and PhD students.
