# Talks and Papers

**Talks:**

- 7 May 2014 - Postgraduate Seminar in Warwick - "The Sims `Verify' algorithm". This was a blackboard talk, but here are my notes for the talk which should be more or less followable in isolation - it is essentially a slightly compressed version of the first half of my first year report.

- 13 June 2014 - Colloquium in Warwick (8 minute talk) - "Bases and Strong Generating Sets". Here are the slides I used.

- 28 October 2014 - Warwick Maths Society - "Finite simple groups". Here are the slides I used.

- 11 March 2015 - Postgraduate Seminar in Warwick - "Finding the maximal subgroups of $SL(n,q)$".

- 1 July 2015 - Postgraduate Group Theory Conference 2015 in Bristol - "Maximal subgroups of finite classical groups of type $S_1$".

- 17 August 2015 - Young Researchers in Mathematics Conference 2015 in Oxford - "Necklaces and spinor norms of permutation matrices".

- 7 October 2015 - Postgraduate Seminar in Warwick - "Necklaces and permutation matrices".

- 30 October 2015 - Junior Algebra Seminar in Cambridge - "Maximal subgroups of low-dimensional classical groups".

- 18 February 2016 - Warwick Algebra Seminar - "Maximal subgroups of finite classical groups of type $C_9$".
