Biography

At high school I was lucky to be benefit from the hard work of very fine teachers. They encouraged my wide interests in mathematics, physics and history from a young age. Later, I spent four years at Oxford University studying Mathematics: three years for my BA, then a year for my MSc in Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis. Afterwards I was employed in industry, devising predictive methods and computer programs for a diesel manufacturer. I moved on to Bristol University, to be employed as a research associate. There I worked for my PhD in breaking waves, and in postdoctoral research, all supervised by the late Professor D.Howell Peregrine. In Nov. 1992 I left Bristol to become a lecturer, now a senior lecturer, at UEA.
