Areas of expertise I am a Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Faculty of Engineering. I am also Director of the Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences. It is a new highly interdisciplinary centre for training and research funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council. The mission of the BCCS is that of nurturing the next generation of scientists and engineers in the most challenging areas of the emerging sciences of complexity. The BCCS is a major collaboration across 4 faculties within the University of Bristol. Finally, I lead the Bristol Centre for Applied Nonlinear Mathematics (BCANM). There is a huge untapped reservoir of significant engineering, industrial and social problems where mathematics can be applied in novel and useful ways or which require innovative non-standard mathematics. In 1992, in response to this need, I set up the BCANM group.
