Nicholas Jackson

Hello, I’m Nicholas. I teach in the Mathematics and Economics departments at the University of Warwick, and I also do research in algebra and topology, particularly the bits that relate to knots.

I give talks on mathematics and related topics, often at science fiction conventions and similar events, about subjects including non-Euclidean geometry, the mathematics of networks, error-correcting codes, knot theory, why you can’t square a circle (and whether Indiana actually tried to legislate for the value of pi). I’m also a STEM Ambassador, and I help run a Code Club at my local library, teaching computer programming to 9-11-year-old children.
