I collaborate with a number of colleagues and friends around the world including Auckland, Bristol, Krakow, Oxford, Texas and Toronto.
If you don't know any topology then the Topology Atlas is a good
place to find out.
Papers and Preprints
If you know some general topology you can get a better idea of
the sort of things I am interested in by looking at a list of my publications and preprints.
Lylah Haynes was awarded her PhD in 2006.
Her thesis was on Monotonizations of countable paracompactness
Tom Parker was awarded his MPhil in 2007.
His thesis was on Sharkovskii's theorem and chaotic dynamical systems.
Andrew Barwell (2007-2010): Andy's thesis, Omega-limit sets of discrete dynamical systems, looked at the topological structure of omega-limit sets.
Syahida binti Che Dzul-Kifli (March 2008-2012): Syahida's thesis title is Chaotic dynamical systems, she looks at
questions around Devaney's definition of chaos, in particular density of periodic points.
Amna Ahmed (July 2008-2012): Amna's thesis title is Abstract topological dynamics, she looks at
topologies on a countable sets that make a given map continuous and orders on a countable set that make a given map order preserving.
Kyriakos Papadopoulos (2008-) will be working on
characterizations of ordinal spaces.
If you are interested in studying for a postgraduate degree with me, please e-mail me: email@example.com (my contact details are on my homepage ). There is a lively postgraduate maths group in Birmingham and we encourage applications from around the world. For details of postgraduate courses and how to apply, see the School's Admissions web pages.
The Galway Topology Colloquia
The Galway Topology Colloquium is an annual meeting for
topologists from Eire, the United Kingdom and elsewhere. It is a
deliberately informal meeting where talks do not have to be new
research and graduates are particularly encouraged to attend and
