- I am a professor of mathematics at Bristol University and an honorary visiting professor at Royal Holloway, University of London. My interests are in algebraic combinatorics and representation theory, especially the representation theory of the symmetric groups and related algebras. I also post to my mathematical blog.
- Research
- Most recent paper: The partition algebra and the plethysm coefficients II: Ramified plethysm. Coauthors: Chris Bowman, Rowena Paget.
- Other recent papers: A necessary and sufficient condition for double coset lumping of Markov chains on groups with an application to the random to top shuffle. Coauthor: John R. Britnell.
- Involutive random walks on total orders and the anti-diagonal eigenvalue property. Coauthor: John R. Britnell.
- Modular plethystic isomorphisms for two-dimensional linear groups. Coauthor: Eoghan McDowell.
