Works in Computer Algebra, where he is an author of a textbook, many papers (see here for recent ones), posters and presentations, and editor-in-chief of a conference volume (CICM 2011). See Mathematical Reviews on JHD for a list that they consider "mathematical" (needs a subscription). His major research effort is following up his grant in Real Geometry and Connectedness via Triangular Description, and leading the exploration of the link between Symbolic Computation and Satisfiability Checking. He has other PhD research topics: see this topic list. One of his research students talks about the experience.

Vice-President and various other things of the British Computer Society.
Awarded a National Teaching Fellowship for 2014. Here are his views on the apprentice model for teaching programming and low-stakes frequent assessment for this.
Awarded a Software Sustainability Fellowship for 2016.
He is heavily involved with the International Collegiate Programming Contest, both for UK/Ireland and for the North-West Europe Region, hosting both the 2016 and 2017 Regional contests.
Founding Editor-in-Chief LMS Journal of
Computation and Mathematics:
Until June 2008, Director of Studies for undergraduates, and would still like them to speak English. He represents the University on the Bristol Military Education Committee. He is Pensions Representative for the local association of the Universities and Colleges Union.
He coordinates Bath's entries for the ACM Intercollegiate Programming Contest, and in particular the Bath site of the UK/Ireland sub-regional contest. In 2016 and 2017, Bath will be host to the NorthWest Europe Regional Finals: see the news feed.
He has been heavily involved in OpenMath, and recently spoke on this, and was interviewed on Hungarian Tv Liceum. He was also Treasurer of the European Mathematical Trust.
He chaired the Research Committee's Working Party on Powerful Computing: report here, and is on the High-Performance Computing Facilities Advisory Group: see service details here. He led for Bath in the GW4 project for an innovative ARM-based supercomputer, Phase 1 of which is pictured here.
His notes on various scientific meetings are listed here.
