About me

I’m a Senior Lecturer (sort-of equivalent to associate professor for those outside the UK) in Engineering Mathematics at the University of Bristol, UK. I’m also husband of Johanna and father of Phoebe, Niamh, Esther and Titus. These site is a mixture of my personal interests and my professional work ― who said business and pleasure don’t mix?!
