Research interests

Tony's current research focus is two-fold: (1) to understand naturally occurring intricate geometric structures of mathematical quasicrystals as well as fractal sets arising in number theory, and (2) to investigate applications of fractal geometry in chemistry and engineering. These projects are supported by EPSRC Grant EP/Y023358/1 and the University of Birmingham-Leiden Collaboration Fund.

Biography

Tony is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham. He serves on the advisory board of the Academy for the Mathematical Sciences and is a member of EPSRC's peer review college. Prior to joining the University of Birmingham, he held academic posts at California Polytechnic State University, Universität Bremen, Australian National University and the University of St Andrews. He has also had the privilege of holding prolonged research stays at the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics, Humboldt–Universität zu Berlin, Institut Mittag–Leffler, and South China University of Technology.

Since 2020 he has been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and from 2020 to 2023 a Director of Student Experience. He is currently the School of Mathematics's Chair of Information Technology and Digital Delivery, and in 2018, he was honoured with the Terrance Harris Excellence in Mentorship Award from California Polytechnic State University.

Tony's research focus is two-fold: (1) to understand naturally occurring intricate geometric structures of mathematical quasicrystals as well as fractal sets arising in number theory, and (2) to investigate applications of fractal geometry in chemistry and engineering.  These projects are supported by EPSRC grant EP/Y023358/1 and the University of Birmingham-Leiden Collaboration Fund.

He is also interested in developing interactive educational materials using RStudio and the Python library Manim. For links to pre-prints of his research articles, as well as his peer reviewed publications, please visit arXiv and Google Scholar. Now and then, he also writes reviews for MathSciNet and zbMATH.
