My classes

in physics and applied mathematics

My undergraduate teaching is primarily in Portsmouth's new degree in Applied Physics (download a brochure!) I teach a first year unit called Introduction to Mathematical Physics I . Students in the unit can find course materials on the Moodle website and the Mastering Physics website. Link

I also teach short courses on advanced topics to the postgraduate students at the ICG. Last year I reviewed the physics of the cosmic microwave background. This year I will teach a statistics course which takes a Bayesian approach to problems in astrophysics. Summary notes from my undergraduate unit may also be of interest, as well as their problem set.

Finally, I recently took over the job of Research Degrees Coordinator for the Faculty of Technology, where I try to help ensure that our graduate students have a productive and successful time while here at the University of Portsmouth.
