I am a mathematician (with an extremely strong interest in computer science!). I studied mathematics at Queen Mary and Westfield College from 1987, and then came to the Mathematical Institute in Oxford to study for a DPhil. in 1990. My project concerned viscous flow, in particular the motion of a solid ball in a rotating container of treacle.
From 1994 to 1996 I was employed by the University of Bath to work on a large research project called Development of Modelling Tools for the Forging Industry.
Since the beginning of 1997, I have been back in Oxford. I was initially employed as a research officer on the grant Manufacturing automation of large scale assemblies in the Computing Laboratory (now Department of Computer Science) and was then supervised by the late Stephen Cameron
