In 2019/20 I will be teaching Group Theory (MATH 33300) and Representation Theory (MATH M4600), both in Teaching Block 1.

The University webpages for these units can be found here and here. All teaching materials can be accessed via Blackboard.

Big Ideas in Science

For the last few years, I have given a lecture on Perfect Symmetry, highlighting the central role of symmetry in mathematics. This lecture is part of the unit

Big Ideas in Science
which is designed for first year Faculty of Science students at the University of Bristol.


Some problems in the theory of simple groups

In September 2016, I gave four lectures on Simple groups, fixed point ratios and applications at a workshop on

Some problems in the theory of simple groups
at the Bernoulli Center at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.

This survey article is based on the content of these lectures.


Young Algebraists' Conference

In June 2014, I gave five lectures on Permutation Groups at a summer school on

Groups, Representation Theory and Related Topics
at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.

An expanded version of the lecture notes can be found here.
