## The Universe is a beautiful and fascinating puzzle. I am lucky enough to get paid for trying to explain how it works, and to model it mathematically. More about my work on non-equilibrium statistical mechanics can be found here and I discussed why it's fundamental here. An introduction to rheology (the flow-properties of fluids) and some of my work on that area can be found here. My publications are listed here.Research projects availableFor Leeds Maths students, I am have the following short research projects available: For MATH5003/4: For MATH3001: Lectures
My current lecture courses are: MATH3424 Introduction to Entropy in the Physical World MATH5452M Advanced Entropy in the Physical World Public Understanding of ScienceAs well as publishing in academic journals, I enjoy writing about all aspects of physics, and giving public talks about my work and other developments in theoretical physics and applied mathematics. In my blog PhysicsBloke.blogspot.com I talk about the elegant and awe-inspiring workings of nature, about my research, science and education policy, and more personal and whimsical views of physics and applied maths. I try to convince the readers that they don’t need to be Albert Einstein to understand the answers. I believe that no topic is too advanced to be explained in an entertaining way. So my articles are aimed at everyone. Curiosity is the only qualification that my readers need. In a similar vein, I have written for the Institute of Physics and for BBC Sky At Night Magazine, where my series of feature articles, "The Big Questions", tackled the enduring questions about the universe .
