Before coming to the University of Chichester, Robert was a graduate student at King’s College London and, before that, an undergraduate student at the University of Cambridge. He completed his Ph.D. research in Algebraic Number Theory under the joint supervision of Prof. David Burns and Prof. Vladimir Dokchitser.
Whilst at King’s, Robert taught on many of the pure mathematics courses, at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level. He was awarded several prizes for his contribution to teaching and learning within the department.
Robert’s research interests centre around the arithmetic of (hyper)elliptic curves.
His doctoral work focused on the arithmetic properties of the leading terms of L-functions attached to Artin-twists of abelian varieties.
Karen is a senior lecturer in mathematics education and the programme co-ordinator for the BSC (Hons) Mathematics and Teaching (QTS) degree; the very same programme she graduated from here at Chichester in 2009.
