I am a Reader in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath.

After completing my PhD at the University of Warwick in 2001, I was appointed as a Wylie Instructor at the University of Utah and later as a Simons Instructor at the University of Stony Brook. In 2006 I returned to the UK as a lecturer at the University of Glasgow in 2006, and I took up my current post at the University of Bath in 2013.

**Research:** My research establishes links between
algebraic geometry and representation theory using techniques from
geometric invariant theory, toric geometry, quiver representations,
noncommutative algebras and derived categories.

I am one of the organisers of the Bath Geometry Seminar. I also sometimes follow the COW and the GLEN (formerly the EGA)

**Editorial work:**
I was an editorial adviser for the London Mathematical Society (2009-13 and 2016-17) and a subject editor at the Glasgow Mathematical Journal (2008-12).

I will not publish in or sit on an editorial board of an Elsevier journal; see The Cost of Knowledge.

**Teaching:**
In 2018/19 I will teach MA30055 Introduction to Topology.

In 2012/13 I received the award for the Best Teacher in the College of Science and Engineering (Univ. Glasgow).
