### Position

I am a university lecturer in
Mathematics with the title of Professor and a
tutorial fellow of St Peter's
College. I am a member of the mathematical
physics
group.

### Research

My research interests
lie in geometry and physics,
focussing mostly on general relativity and quantum theory. My
interests are in the use of twistor theory to solve problems in
mathematical physics, geometry, nonlinear differential equations with
a focus on integrable systems arising in geometry and more recently
twistor strings and twistor approaches to scattering amplitudes.
Further details of my research interests can be obtained from my publication list
up
to 1995
and more recent publications can be obtained from the link to Mathsci
in my Official
Maths Institute web page linked in above and from
the
spires
database.

### Meetings that I am organising

Twistors, geometry and physics 21-22 July,
2011, at The Mathematical Institute, Oxford.
