I'm interested in algorithms and computational complexity. Most of my own research has focused on constraint satisfaction problems. More details about this research can be found on the Constraints Group page.
I'm also interested in computational biology. My recent DPhil student, Dan Nichol, was jointly supervised by Alexander Anderson, in the Integrated Mathematical Oncology Lab at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center in Florida. My current DPhil student, Artem Kaznatcheev, is sponsored by Jacob Scott, at the Taussig Cancer Institute in Cleveland, Ohio.
