- I am a lecturer in mathematics at Royal Holloway, University of London. My mathematical interests are in 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: Bell numbers, partition moves and the eigenvalues of the random-to-top shuffle in types A, B and D. Coauthor: John R. Britnell.
- Also recently submitted:
On signed
*p*-Kostka numbers and the indecomposable signed Young permutation modules. Coauthors: Eugenio Giannelli and Kay Jin Lim. - Searching for knights and spies: a majority/minority game. Some source code and background.
- Sylow subgroups of symmetric and alternating groups and the vertex of
*S*^{(kp-p,1p)}in characteristic*p*. Coauthors: Eugenio Giannelli and Kay Jin Lim. - Minimal and maximal constituents of twisted Foulkes characters. Coauthor: Rowena Paget.
