My mathematics research is in algebra and combinatorics. I have a variety of collaborators for this work.

My mathematics education research is focussed on tertiary mathematics for students with a poor mathematics background. Some of this work is with Associate Professor Carmel Coady.

Some rather inaccurate history: other subjects lectured and coordinated.
