Academic Research

Researcher 2010-2015

Most of my academic publications can be found on Google Scholar. Here is a complete list.

These are preprints, so it is possible that a paper may not be on the web yet, but either was accepted or is in the process of being published at the moment. To help you cite them, I’ve added a bibtex file, and the slides from presentations, for each - here is all of the bibtex information, at once, if you’re really keen.

As well as the below, I occasionally review articles for journals, most notably for JOSS, SIGUL, and CCURL.
