- In 2020 I was awarded the Senior Anne Bennett prize by the London Mathematical Society ``in recognition of his tireless work to support gender equality in UK mathematics, and particularly for his leadership in developing good practice among departments of mathematical sciences". The full citation is given here.

- I am participant in the NIST Digital Library
of Mathematical Functions project, companion to the
NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions, funded by the U.S. National Science
Foundation, and organised by the National Institute of Standards and
Technology, Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA. This project is to update Abramowitz
and Stegun's
*Handbook of Mathematical Functions*. My role in the project is writing the chapter on Painlevé Transcendents.

- I am a member of the following societies: the American Mathematical Society, the Australian Mathematical Society, the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, the Institute of Physics, the London Mathematical Society and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

- I was a member of the Women in Mathematics Committee (2007-2018)
of the London Mathematical Society.

- I was chair of the steering committee for the Good Practice Scheme (2013-2018) which has the the aim of supporting Mathematics departments interested in embedding equal opportunities for women within their working practices.
The Scheme provides specific support for departments working towards Athena SWAN Award status
and organizes events.

- The London Mathematical Society launched its report
Advancing women in mathematics: good practice in UK university departments at the House of Commons on 27th February 2013.
More details of the launch and the report are given
here.

- I am a member of the SIAM Activity Group on Orthogonal
Polynomials and Special Functions. During recent years I have served as an
Officer of the Activity Group: Chair (2005-2007, 2020-date), Secretary (2002-2004, 2011-2013)
and Vice-Chair (2008-2010).

- The activity group promotes basic research in orthogonal polynomials and
special functions; furthers the application of this subject in other parts of
mathematics, and in science and industry; and encourages and supports the
exchange of information, ideas, and techniques between workers in this field
and other mathematicians and scientists.

- The activity group publishes the electronic newsletter OP-SF NET,
maintains an electronic discussion group (OPSFtalk), sponsors minisymposia
at the SIAM annual meeting, and maintains a
web site which includes a conference calendar,
a member directory, and an electronic mailing list. The activity group also awards the
Gábor Szegö Prize every two years to an early-career researcher for outstanding research
contributions in the area of orthogonal polynomials and special functions.
