Random walks, Brownian motion, mixing times of Markov chains, Poisson Brownian motions, rearrangement inequalities.
Patrick Barrie: from studying Natural Sciences, to researching spectroscopy, to teaching Chemical Engineering and, throughout, playing tiddlywinks.
Japan, books, prints, popular culture, unusual scripts and cats: these are the great passions of my life.
After graduating from Oxford in 1964, I joined the research group of Luis Alvarez at the University of California, Berkeley, where I obtained a Ph.D. in experimental particle physics in 1969.
I came to Emmanuel in 1984 to read Mathematics, and have been here in various guises ever since.
