My research interests have been in computational number theory, the arithmetic of elliptic curves, algebraic combinatorics and public-key cryptography. My current personal research is on 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.

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