### Background

I am the Deputy Director of Studies in Chemistry at Oxford, and a Special Supernumerary Fellow of University College, Oxford.

I have longstanding interests in university teaching and learning. I am currently developing the Chemistry Department's Graduate Training Programme, combining training in both research and transferable skills for our postgraduate research students.

### Teaching

I organise and lecture the first-year undergraduate *Mathematics for Chemistry* course, as well as the graduate-level *Mathematics I* course within the TMCS CDT. I combine traditional 'chalk and talk'-style lecturing with computer visualisations and online video resources.

*Mathematics I*course is on the TMCS intranet.

### Research

My main research interests lie in the field of condensed matter theory, where the aim is to characterise and understand the physical properties of materials consisting of enormously large numbers of interacting particles. Of particular interest to me are 'strongly-correlated' systems, where the interactions between particles cannot be treated using so-called mean-field approaches (where only the 'average' behaviour of the particles needs to be considered). For these systems, one must instead develop quantum many-body theories, in which the true, correlated motion of the particles is taken explicitly into account.

I have previously worked on understanding many-body effects on the nanoscale, as observed in the electronic conductance of single molecules, carbon nanotubes and other 'quantum dot' devices. I have more recently been working on correlated electron behaviour in bulk materials such as heavy fermion compounds. I'm also interested in developing general theories for approximating many-body systems, and in numerical methods such as the Numerical Renormalization Group and Continuous-Time Quantum Monte Carlo. For more information, see my publication list below.
