Welcome to my web site
I studied mathematics as an undergraduate at London University, and then went to Oxford University as a research student in the Mathematical Institute, and was awarded my DPhil in 1980.
Something I really love is having a long walk along the coast of Cornwall, which is lucky, because I live there. I also enjoy choral singing, and I have a private pilot's licence, which reminds me of how much I enjoyed flying when I could afford it!
I am the General Secretary of the London Mathematical Society, having served as its Programme Secretary from 2001 to 2011. I was also the Secretary of the European Mathematical Society from 2007 to 2014.
