Summer School Lectures:

In addition to the courses taught at Durham, I have given series of lectures in the following summer schools:

Undergraduate Colloquium at Durham:

Finally, I have chaired the Undergraduate Colloquium committee 2007 – 2015. There are two – three colloquia each term, intended to allow maths undergraduates at all levels to get a glimpse of “real math” and its applications (as well as what lecturers do when they’re not lecturing).
