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 in Mathematics: 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.
Teaching: In 2018/19 I'm teaching MA30055 Introduction to Topology.
On ME/CFS and Proprioception Dysfunction Syndrome After suffering from ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) on and off for several years, I was diagnosed and treated for Proprioception Dysfunction Syndrome (PDS) in 2018 by Orlando Alves da Silva. My recovery was rapid, robust and long term. Orlando's work with me, together with a subsequent case study, demonstrates that it is possible for a severely ill patient to recover from the symptoms of ME/CFS while undergoing the treatment for PDS.
