Research Interests: Transmathematics and transcomputation
I invented transmathematics in 1997. This allows division by zero in a consistent way. I founded the Transmathematica Society in 2014. It will hold its first international conference in 2017. I use transmathematics in the design of computer hardware, compilers, programming languages and algorithms. I supervised the first doctoral and postdoctoral theses in transmathematics, both awarded in 2014, and am happy to supervise postgraduate research.
I have carried out more than £1m of funded research in basic science and applications. I am engaged in international collaborations on transmathematics and infinitely scalable data-flow machines that use transmathematics to achieve extremely high throughput of computations.
I am a Fellow of BCS The Chartered Institute for IT and have the distinction of being the BCS's first Chartered Scientist. I engage in outreach activities to promote the public understanding of science. Feel free to contact me if you would like me to take part in an event.
