"I think that mathematics is one of the most intellectually gratifying of human activities. Because we have a high standard for clear and convincing thinking and because we place a high value on listening to and trying to understand each other, we don't engage in interminable arguments and endless redoing of our mathematics. We are prepared to be convinced by others."

William Thurston, On proof and progress in mathematics.

This year I will be teaching part of the Topics in Discrete Mathematics course for 3rd and 4th year students, the official course website for which can be found here. A page for my part of this course can be found here.

**Teaching experience**

- 2014-15: I taught part of the Topics in Discrete Mathematics course for 3rd and 4th year students, giving an introduction to Graph Theory, with emphasis on extremal topics such as Turan's theorem. The old website for this course can be found here.
- 2012-13: I taught two undergraduate classes for small groups of first year students, covering Analysis and Linear Algebra.
- 2011-12: I taught two undergraduate classes for small groups of first year students, one for a foundational course for non-mathematics students, and the other covering a range of Pure topics for mathematics students.
