Biography:

I was born in Wigan, Lancashire and educated at Abbey Gate College, Saighton Grange, near Chester. I did my MA and DPhil at St. Hugh's College, Oxford University. From 1996-2000 I was the Fellow and Tutor in Applied Mathematics at Oriel College, Oxford, before I moved to a lectureship at the University of Sheffield in September 2000.

Research interests:

My research interests lie in general relativity, black holes and quantum field theory in curved space-time. Current projects include:
  • The effect of boundary conditions on quantum fields in curved space-time
  • Quantum field theory on anti-de Sitter space-time and asymptotically anti-de Sitter black holes
  • The effect of superradiance on quantum fields on black hole space-times
  • Quantum fields on BTZ black holes

Teaching interests:

My main teaching interests are:
  • Engineering mathematics
  • Differential equations
  • Mathematical physics
  • Supervising MMath projects
