I am an enthusiastic lecturer with wide experience of undergraduate teaching at all levels. For many years I taught a popular level three combinatorics module. Other courses I have taught in Sheffield include:

  • Analysis

  • Vector spaces and Fourier theory

  • Groups and symmetries

  • Algebraic topology

Other lecturing experience includes courses on metric spaces and measure and integration.

I very much enjoy supervising project work. Level four MMath project topics I have supervised include:

  • Aperiodic tilings

  • Combinatorics of the symmetric group

  • Discrete geometry

  • Integer valued polynomials

  • Integer partitions

  • The Dold-Kan correspondence

In 2022–23, I am teaching the year-long second year MAS221 Analysis module and MAS334 Combinatorics.
