Tony is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham. He has held academic posts at California Polytechnic State University, Universität Bremen, Australian National University and the University of St Andrews. He has also had the privilege of holding prolonged research stays at the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics, Humboldt–Universität zu Berlin, Institut Mittag–Leffler, and South China University of Technology. 

Since 2020 he has been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and the Director of Student Experience for J-BJI – a joint institute which runs a transnational undergraduate education program. Futher, in 2018, he was honoured with the Terrance Harris Excellence in Mentorship Award from California Polytechnic State University.

Tony's mathematical research interests lie in aperiodic order (mathematical quasicrystals), Diophantine approximations, dynamical systems, fractal geometry, and numeration systems. More recently he has become interested in developing interactive educational materials using RStudio and the Python library Manim. For links to pre-prints of his research articles, as well as his peer reviewed publications, please visit arXiv and Google Scholar. Now and then, he also write reviews for MathSciNet and zbMATH.
