Personal profile

Research interests

My research is mainly in pure and applied probability; I am a member of the ProbL@B (Probability Laboratory at Bath).

I work in a number of interconnected areas, mostly in and around Stochastic Geometry. My recent and current areas of research activity include the following: discrete and continuous percolation; interacting particle systems, particularly models of spatial deposition, and the resulting point processes; random packing of hard spheres; limit theorems in stochastic geometry, including rates of convergence and applications; spatial random networks, for example random geometric graphs and also directed and dynamical random networks; stochastic combinatorics, e.g. allocation models and random matrices; stochastic analysis on Poisson spaces - Stein's method and Malliavin calculus.

My monograph 'Random Geometric Graphs' (Oxford University Press, 2003) continues to inform some (though not all) of my research (and that of others).

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
