The last wet day of a 2020 backpacking trip. I'm on the right. Dr. Valerie Booth (Biochemistry) is peeping up from below. Photo credit for this not-very-good selfie: me.

I'm a professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics (cross-appointed to Physics and Graduate Office for Theoretical Physics) at Memorial University in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

My academic activities are:

Research: I'm a mathematical relativist who specializes in black hole physics. I'm particularly interested in black hole dynamics.

Teaching: I teach courses like calculus, mathematical writing, differential equations, vector calculus, differential and Riemannian geometry and general relativity.

There's information on all of this in the links but in particular if you're interested in working for me either as a summer, honours, or graduate student check out the Once and Future Students section.

As a mathematician and physicist I recognize that our field is not as equitable, diverse or inclusive as it should be. I believe that we need to move mathematics and physics to better match those ideals. I am committed to supporting diversity in our field, including
indigeneity, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality and neuro-diversity. As a supervisor I welcome applications from students of all backgrounds.
