Professor of Mathematics and Head of the Department of Mathematics, University of York

I was an undergraduate in Cambridge, a PhD student in Durham and a post-doc in Kyoto before returning to Cambridge, with fellowships at Queens' and then Pembroke colleges. In 1998 I moved to Sheffield as a lecturer, then on to York in 2000.

Research interests:

Mathematical Physics, warfare modelling: combat modelling, insurgencies, and modelling-informed historical perspectives on air and naval war.

Scaling laws in biology: Scaling of human body mass with height: the Body Mass Index revisited and Mass scale and curvature in metabolic scaling.
