About me

From 1988 to 2006 I was Professor of Mathematics at the London School of Economics, where I was also Director of CDAM, the Centre for Discrete and Applicable Mathematics. I have written13 books and over 100 papers on mathematical topics, many of them in algebraic combinatorics and its applications.  I became Emeritus Professor in 2006 and continue to teach MA318 History of Mathematics in Finance and Economics for undergraduates.

I am a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics.

I am a former General Secretary and a member of the Council of the London Mathematical Society.

My hobby is writing about the history of weights and scales.  From 2009-2014 I was Chair of the International Society of Antique Scale Collectors (Europe). I am a member of the British Numismatic Society. and in 2014 I was Vice-President of the British Society for the History of Mathematics.
