Research summary

I am a Professor of Theoretical Physics in the Theoretical Physics Group of the Physics Department, University of Bristol, UK.  My research focuses primarily in geometric and topological aspects of wave physics, and more generally in the physics of optical and quantum mechanical waves.

I am particularly interested in: 

· Singular and topological optics (the study of singular loci of scalar, vector, and tensor wave fields), including optical vortices, wave dislocations and polarization singularities. 

· Statistical geometry and topology of random functions, and applications in quantum chaos, statistical optics, and cosmology. 

· Geometry and topology of knots ...
