He taught at the Universities of Liverpool and Oxford before joining Hertfordshire in 1997. He specialises in the history and philosophy of mathematics and science. His current project is to develop a historically sensitive and properly philosophical approach to the study of mathematical practice

In recent years, he has developed a philosophical interest in pedagogy in higher education.
