I’m a Reader (equivalent to Associate Professor for those outside the UK) in Engineering Mathematics at the University of Bristol, UK. I’m active in research in nonlinear dynamics and control, mixed in with a bit of machine learning and robotics. I’m also husband to Johanna and father of Phoebe, Niamh, Esther, Titus, and Charlotte, and spend a lot of time involved in my local church Emmanuel Bishopston.
