My research interests have been in computational number theory, the arithmetic of elliptic curves, Diophantine equations, algebraic combinatorics and public-key cryptography.

I have recently been interested in string algorithms, and in Carmichael numbers and pseudoprimes.

I am a member of the London Mathematical Society; a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and a Chartered Mathematician and Chartered Scientist.

For 2019-2020 I am Vice-President, Professional Affairs and Industry, of the IMA, and a member-at-large of the Council of the LMS. I am on the advisory board of the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Edinburgh.

My Erdos number is 3 (via Swinnerton-Dyer -- Davenport).
