Simon Nickerson's Research

About me

Up until 2005, I was a PhD student in Mathematics at the University of Birmingham, supervised by Professor R. A. Wilson. My research was in finite group theory, and I was particularly interested in computations with finite simple groups and related groups, such as their automorphism groups and covers.

In my PhD thesis, I constructed characteristic zero representations for some quasi-simple groups for the ATLAS of Finite Group Representations. I also found standard generators for those groups which didn't have them defined.

Here is an unflattering photo of me giving a talk.
