- Dr Robert Brignall

I'm a Senior Lecturer and the Director of Research in the School of Mathematics and Statistics, having joined the OU as a Lecturer in 2010. After graduating from the University of Cambridge in 2003, I studied first for an MSc and then completed my PhD in 2007 at the University of St Andrews, before moving to the University of Bristol as a Research Fellow. You should visit my personal page if you would like to read more.

My research interests lie in enumerative and structural combinatorics, more specifically on permutation patterns, graph theory, and well-quasi-ordering. You should visit my personal page if you would like to read more, including access to my preprints, papers, and slides of talks that I have given.
