01/2024 I am teaching the module Statistical Models at the University of Hull. This is a Year 2 module for the BSc in Mathematics 2023/24. Here are the module Webpage and Slides
12/2023 Our preprint Time-rank duality in a simple model for Formula 1 racing is out. We provide a novel approach
to estimate race-winning probabilities, which leads to new insights regarding driver-level versus car-level effects, as well as a simplified Monte Carlo simulation algorithm. Here is the paper
09/2023 During Term 1 of the current academic year 2023/24 I am leading the courses Numbers, Sequences and Series and Differential Geometry at the University of Hull. Follow the links for Lecture notes and Exercises
