Research interestsIn 1972, after completing my PhD at Cambridge, I went to the University of Durham as Addison Wheeler Fellow; thereafter, except for a number of years absence at CERN, the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, the California Institute of Technology, and some months in the ITP Santa Barbara, YITP Kyoto, ENSLyon and Cambridge UK, I worked in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Durham until 1999, moving to York for seven years. From January 2008 I was Principal of Collingwood College, Durham, until my return to York in October 2011. For many years (19922006) I was the coordinator of three European Networks* and one INTAS Network. I have been fortunate to have had a strong collaborative relationship with YITP (Kyoto University), entailing many enjoyable visits to Japan. My interests have varied over the years, ranging from string theory (in its early days) to integrable quantum field theory (especially Toda field theory), via gauge theories (monopoles and instantons). My current research concerns various aspects of Mathematical Physics, especially
*York was the coordinating partner of the EC FP5 Network EUCLID from October 2002  September 2006.
