Who?

http://home.jesus.ox.ac.uk/~dacheson/nwd4.jpg
David Acheson is a Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford, and the author of a fantastic little book called "1089 and All That". He enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame when he appeared live on BBC's Tomorrow's World to demonstrate his explanation of the Indian Rope Trick.

David has been awarded a National Teaching Fellowship in recognition of 'his outstanding contribution to learning and teaching'. He plans to use the award to attempt a breakthrough in the communication of mathematics, particularly to students who are about to start at university.


Where?

Upcoming talk locations.
Larger dots mean sooner,
red dots are already past.
The map at right gives the locations of some of David's upcoming talks. More details can be found on his web site: This page is not definitive - Solipsys Limited and Colin Wright have no formal connection with David, apart from occasionally appearing on the same speaking program.

Having said that, David is one of my recommended Other Speakers.
