The focus of my research is on the representation theory of finite dimensional algebras. In particular, I'm interested in cohomology theories, homological algebra, and connections of representation theory with other areas of mathematics.


NEW The Bloc LMS Network Grant has been renewed for 2019-2020. Watch this space for the next meeting. 


NEW I have taken over the coordination of the LMS Midlands Regional Meetings, if you are interested in organising a meeting please contact me. 


NEW I'm organising a semester programme at the Isaac Newton Institute on Cluster Algebras and Representation Theory (provisional date September-December 2021).
