Many of the projects available for research students are listed on our Algebra and Analysis research group projects page.
I often use (mathematical) Swiss cheeses in my work.

And here is a picture of me with a very appropriate sculpture next to the Science library of Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, during my sabbatical visit there, January to July 1999.

I also made a poster about Swiss cheeses back in the 90s.

I am also currently the School's Teaching Support Officer, supporting our first-year Core modules.
I have taught honours mathematics modules and service teaching modules to students from many disciplines, including Foundation Year Engineering students.
The subjects I have taught include introductory pure mathematics, calculus, analysis (real, complex and functional analysis), linear algebra, numerical analysis and graph theory.
I have supervised many summer undergraduate research internships and BSc/MSc/MMath projects. Eight of these project students (so far) have gone on to become my own (PhD) research students.
In December 2008 I started a new blog on
Explaining mathematics (How
to explain mathematical concepts in a way that students can
understand). As well as discussion of my recent experiences, ideas, and
teaching methodology, my blog includes links to a number of my teaching
resources, and, in particular, to videos of many of my classes.
I try to keep my latest teaching timetable updated at https://tinyurl.com/jffttnow
Here is a poster, dating from the 90s, with some information about Othello.
Note that computers were much slower back in 1993, and also we no longer install Thor as standard on the School's PCs.
