Lecture Theatre A, Watson Building (R15 on campus map [PDF])

Professor Chris Good’s Inaugural Lecture will chart his development as a mathematician from his first experience of infinity as a young child through to his present day work on topological dynamics.

Chris will introduce his work, highlighting three favourite theorems he has proven over the course of his career. He will explain what inspired him to become a mathematician and why the study of pure mathematics matters. Along the way, he will talk about the importance of family, rugby, bread and coffee. 

Chris Good is Professor of Mathematics and Deputy Head of the School of Mathematics. He is the author of over 50 research articles in set-theoretic topology and topological dynamics. Chris has a long standing interest in teaching and was awarded the first Head of School’s Excellence in Teaching Award. 

Complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be served at the event. Alcoholic drinks will be served only to those who are aged 18 or over.
