Profile summary

Professional biography

I am a lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Statistics, based in Milton Keynes.

I joined the Open University in 2019, and previously held positions at Trent University, Canada, and Université Claude-Bernard Lyon 1, France.

 

Research interests

My research interests lie in  symbolic dynamics, automata theory, number theory and their interactions. In particular I like thinking about invariants of substitution dynamical systems, Bratteli-Vershik and S-adic systems, invariant measures for cellular automata, and automatic sequences.
