Previous seminars

The East Midlands Seminar in Geometry (EmSG), 20152020. An algebraic geometry seminar based at the Universities of Nottingham, Loughborough, Leicester, and Sheffield. The EmSG met approximately six times per year.

Whilst at UNB I helped organise several geometry seminars. I was also the UNB organiser for the summer 2007 ASCI seminar series.

Between October 2003 and October 2005 I organised the Calf (junior COW). For information on current Calf events, please go here. For a historical record of the events I organised, go here.
