Andy believes in inspiring the next generation of mathematicians, and is involved with School Outreach activities with local schools and the general public, encouraging them to be co-creators of new mathematical research. Until late 2014 he was Head of the Mathematics group but then took up an EPSRC Established Career Fellowship, working on the project Cluster algebras with periodicity and discrete dynamics over finite fields, which applies ideas from mathematical physics to contemporary problems in algebra and number theory.
Andy can offer a number of PhD projects related to discrete integrable systems, cluster algebras, and iteration of birational maps over finite fields.
Editorial board member of Journal of Physics A: Mathematical & Theoretical and Journal of Nonlinear Mathematical Physics. Member of the EPSRC College.
