Research interests

The codes of various affine and projective geometries, their duals and other related codes with particular reference to the existence and construction of permutation decoding sets for these codes and the determination of appropriate related information sets.

Aspects of the representations of Hecke algebras of type A and the corresponding symmetric groups.
