This year I am teaching the thrid year course MATH3193 on Algebras and Representations jointly with Dr Oliver King. Material for this course will be made available via the VLE. You will need to log into the VLE and be enrolled in order to see this content. (Although some material is available via "guest" access.)

Research Interests

One area I am interested in is the modular representation theory of algebraic groups. This has connections with representation theory for the symmetric groups. In particular I am looking at homological properties of Schur algebras (S(n,r)) and quasi-hereditary algebras. I also look at diagram algebras and quasi-hereditary algebras. Recently, I have also looked at Hochschild cohomology. Together with Prof. Paul Martin, we have an EPSRC project entitled Algebraic structures connecting Lie theory and many body Physics . Dr Oliver King is the postdoc currently employed on this grant.


Please see my publications page for a list. Versions of most of my papers may be downloaded from the arXiv.
