I studied Mathematics as an undergraduate at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and did my PhD at King's College London, under the supervision of Prof. Colin Bushnell. After postdoctoral positions in Paris and Münster, and a junior position in Oxford, I joined UEA in 2002.

My research is at the interface of Algebra and Number Theory, in an area known as the local Langlands correspondence. In 2009 I was awarded a five-year EPSRC Leadership Fellowship on “Explicit Correspondences in Number Theory” to work in this area.

I have taught most of the core pure mathematics modules at the UEA, as well as more advanced modules in Algebra and Number Theory. I have supervised, either jointly or solely, ten PhD students to completion and several postdoctoral researcherst.

I am on the EPSRC Peer Review College and was formerly co-editor of the Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society (2009-14). I am currently the Head of School of Mathematics at UEA.
