I am a member the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Computational Algebra which bridges the Schools of Computer Science and Mathematics and Statistics and supports a range of research projects in the application of computer methods in abstract algebra.

I do quite a bit of work on and with GAP (Groups, Algorithms, Programs) a powerful and flexible system for computation in group theory, algebra and discrete mathematics. I coordinated the EU Framework 6 Integrated Infrastructure Initiative SCIEnce and am now a partner in OpenDreamKit.


I teach as required in the School of Computer Science. Details of all the modules, including whatever I happen to be teaching this year are on their website, and supporting information on the student resources server.
