I was Professor in Mathematics in the University of Wales, Bangor, until 2005, when they shut the mathematics department down. (Please do not react by saying 'a university without a maths department! How is that possible?' The answer is 'It is all too easy in some education systems'.)

Since the closure, I have been, amongst other things, a visiting professor/researcher in Ottawa, Galway, Paris, Granada, and have given numerous workshop and seminar talks (Lisbon, Porto, Barcelona, Cardiff, Luminy, IHP, LiX). I was a CNRS visitor in Lyon (France) working with Philippe Malbos and Yves Guiraud and in autumn 2011, visited the Université de Savoie, Chambery on a research visit. More recently I have been visiting Granada for four weeks followed by short visits to Logrono and Madrid.

I am an `emeritus member' of WIMCS and helped organise a recent WIMCS related workshop in Cardiff on Higher Gauge Theory, TQFTs and categorification. I am a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales.
