## Current Research

Ongoing work is focused on the consideration of alternative techniques for fast variable elimination in stochastic systems. I am also interested in investigating stochastic methods in optimal control theory.

## Outreach

I am involved in the "Alan Turing: Maths and Morphogenesis" A-level study days run by the University of Manchester museum.

Here is a nice demonstration of how Fourier series may be used to construct arbitrary functions (graphs) from a sum of different waves.

Here is an interactive demonstration of pattern formation used courtesy of Tim Rogers, now based in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath.
