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, 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.

The Bath Geometry Seminar. I also sometimes follow the COW and the GLEN (formerly the EGA)

**Teaching:**
In 2020/21 I will teach Foundation Mathematics 1 and Introduction to Topology.
