Teaching

I used to teach at Central Saint Martins, where co-founded and co-run the Fine Art Maths Centre. This was the first centre of its kind in the UK and was initially funded as a Sigma maths support centre. It offered workshop and tutorial support to artists who wanted to advance their practice or make specific works.

Our initial provision focused on geometry – Euclidean, Projective & Perspective and Topology & non-Euclidean – but we expanded to include introductions to coding and computing, which proved to very popular. In Autumn 2017, we ran an ambitious programme entitled ‘Three Pillars of the Digital’, which provided a series of workshops on coding, connectedness and data. 70 students participated.

A version of our programming courses were made available to the public in collaboration with The Photographers’ Gallery. 

We also authored one self-study textbook based on our Euclidean Geometry course. It is freely available and comes with supporting resources in Geogebra.

Until 2018, I also taught courses in philosophy and the history of mathematics at CityLit, an adult education college in London.

The courses listed below at were available to the general public.
