Teaching

In the academic year 2016-17, I am teaching MAS222 Differential Equations (semester 2) and MAS279 Career Development Skills.  Both modules use MOLE.

Research

My research interests lie in classical general relativity and quantum field theory in curved space-time.  I am particularly interested in black holes.
