University roles and responsibilities
- Director of Learning and Teaching for Department of Mathematics
From 2012-2016 I held a STFC Advanced Fellowship in the Fields, Strings and Geometry Group.
My research is primarily in the investigation of geometric structures which arise in String/M-Theory. I am particularly interested in supergravity, spinorial geometry, classifications of supersymmetric solutions and their geometric properties, and higher dimensional black holes.
Further details about my research can be found on my personal webpage.
This year I am teaching the Special Relativity and Electrodynamics course (MAT3047). All course materials for this will be on SurreyLearn.
I have previously taught Manifolds and Topology (MAT3009) and Riemannian Geometry (MAT3044) at Surrey, a MSc course in Manifolds at King's College London, a Part III course on Symmetry and Particle Physics and a second year Mathematical Methods course for the Natural Sciences Tripos at DAMTP Cambridge.
