Trajectory
Teaching (2014/15)
Erasmus (Physics with Study in Europe)I am the Programme Director for "Physics with Study in Europe" (aka `The Erasmus Guy').See here for info for inbound Erasmus students. For prospective MPhys studentsI normally run 2-3 MPhys projects at any given time. These are usually linked to our ongoing research, I prefer to make them "mini-PhDs", which is why I normally favour full-year projects. Available topics vary from semester to semester (following the natural flow of our research), but they all focus on the application of nonlinear dynamics, statistical physics and the theory of stochastic processes to the mathematical modelling and simulation of problems in complex systems. Past and present topics have for example included
For prospective PhD students in statistical physics of complex systemsIf you are interested in a PhD in the area of complex systems, then you might also want to look at the web pages of the Complex Systems and Statistical Physics Group, in particular the section on Postgraduate Opportunities, where you can find a list of potential topics. You can also contact me by email and come by to talk in more detail.
