|Title:||Lecturer - Maths|
|Location:||MacKay Building Room 2.36|
I was appointed as a lecturer in Computer Science and Mathematics in 1988. I have taught both computing and maths courses continuously since then. Previously I studied maths at Southampton University and then went to Bristol, where I did an MSc in mathematical logic and theory of computation, followed by a PhD in the philosophy of mathematics.
My research is divided between two fields.
- Artificial intelligence - studying the way in which highly structured patterns can be recognised in the presence of noise.
- Philosophy of mathematics - I am interested in different ways of understanding infinity, both in the context of pure mathematics and in the context of physical theories.
For more details, please see my home page.
I am a member of the Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science research group.
