What I'm doing

I am a Lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield; my research interests are in probability. I obtained my DPhil from the Mathematical Institute in the University of Oxford, associated with St. Anne's College and working with Neil O'Connell and Ben Hambly.

Until June 1999 I was a student at Queens' College, Cambridge.
I also spent a year in the Maths Department in the University of Bristol before I moved to Oxford in October 2000.
