Robert Brignall
Robert Brignall I am a Lecturer in Combinatorics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at The Open University. My research interests primarily focus on the study of infinite antichains, well-quasi-ordering, and the interplay between permutation patterns and similar concepts in graph theory. Until 30 September 2013 my research into infinite antichains is being funded by EPSRC grant EP/J006130/1. You may read more about my research, view my list of publications or my list of talks.

I am the department's Research Director, and I also organise our Seminar Series.

Previously, I was a research fellow in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Bristol, and before that I was a PhD student in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of St Andrews.

In the past, I organised the Bristol Combinatorics Seminar, and was on the organising committees for Techniques and Problems in Graph Theory, Permutation Patterns 2010 and Permutation Patterns 2011.
