I am a Senior Research Fellow of the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, a University Research Fellow with the Royal Society, and a Tutorial Fellow of St Hugh's College, Oxford. My research interests lie in aspects of algebra, analysis, combinatorics, geometry and number theory, with particular emphasis on using tools from the former to address problems from the latter.

Anyone looking to contact me with regard to research can do so at the e-mail address with local part tom.sanders and domain or through the contact details available on my departmental page. Similarly, for college matters there is an address with the same local part but domain, and my college page.

Publications [top]

A list of papers may be found on arXiv, and others on MathSciNet and Zentralblatt MATH. Note that some of the MathSciNet and Zentralblatt links require subscriptions to access in their entirety.

ArXiv versions of papers are at least as up-to-date as those linked to from DOIs, although journal formatting is not included.
