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

After completing my PhD at the University of Warwick in 2001 under the supervision of Miles Reid, 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, and I moved to 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.

My research is supported by a Research Project Grant (2021-25) from The Leverhulme Trust.

**Teaching:**
In 2023/24 I teach Year 1, S1 Algebra.

**On chronic fatigue and proprioception dysfunction:**
In October 2014 I fell ill with ME/CFS, also known as chronic fatigue syndrome or post-viral fatigue.
I learned a lot over the next fourteen months of frustration, experimentation, online research and recovery, and I recorded what I discovered
here.
