Biographical Information
I have been involved in research in mathematical sciences since 1975, when I started a DPhil in Probability Theory at Oxford. Since then I have worked as lecturer, senior lecturer, lecturer, reader and then professor at Hull, Strathclyde, and now Warwick.
My research interests centre around interfaces between geometry, computing, probability and statistics. I have contributed to stochastic geometry (the study of the probability and statistics of random patterns), stochastic calculus (including but not restricted to implementations of stochastic calculus formalism in computer algebra packages), the study of random processes on manifolds (sometimes known as stochastic differential geometry), perfect simulation, probabilistic coupling, and most recently the application of stochastic geometry in random networks.
My last four papers at the time of writing (29.03.2011) concern (a) the application of Poisson line processes to construct surprisingly efficient planar networks; (b) probabilistic coupling of Brownian motion together with its stochastic areas; (c) a remarkable connection between the notion of shy coupling, pursuit problems, and modern metric geometry; and (d) an investigation into Riemannian centres of mass which led in an entirely unexpected way to a new formulation of the classic LindebergFeller central limit theorem.
