I am a researcher in the Nonlinear & Complex Systems Group and Research Coordinator for the Department of Mathematics. MORE

My research is focussed on Dynamical Systems. In particular, on transport phenomena. MORE

My teaching is at present focussed on Financial Mathematics and Computational Mathematics. MORE

Over several years, I have been involved in a variety of projects on public engagement with Science. MORE

Dr Andrew Burbanks is a Principal Lecturer in Mathematics and an Associate Member of the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth in the UK. His main research interests are in nonlinear dynamics and the visualisation of mathematical structures.

Dr Burbanks completed his PhD at the University of Loughborough, after which he went on to work at Hewlett-Packard's research laboratories in Bristol before taking up Postdoctoral research positions in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS) at the University of Cambridge and later in the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol where he gained a permanent post as Scientific Programmer.

Dr Burbanks also gave a course of lectures in Part III of the University of Cambridge Mathematics Tripos (Applied) on renormalisation in Dynamical Systems.

Dr Burbanks joined the Department of Mathematics at the University of Portsmouth in 2005, and is now a member of the Nonlinear and Complex Systems Group.

Dr Burbanks has been involved in several successful projects on the interface between science and public understanding, including the Mathematics Posters on the London Underground project in 2000, with the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge, and the Dynamics of Spin exhibit at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London in 2007 and at Techfest (Asia's largest Science and Technology festival) held in Mumbai in 2008. He is also co-founder and chair of the Portsmouth Cafe Scientifique.
