Biography:I was born in London, UK, and went to the University of Warwick where I did a BA, an MSc and a PhD in mathematics. I came to Australia in 1991 and worked at UNSW before going to the University of Newcastle in 1992. I was appointed an Associate Professor in Wollongong in 2007 and promoted to Professor in 2010.
