As from August 31 2001 Alan Camina in now an Honorary Professor in the School of Mathematics at UEA. My plans are to write some papers, do some research and spend time doing things I like. However I am now the facilitator for the LMS! This might be helpful.

My colleagues kindly organised a celebratory day for my retirement. Here are some pictures.

My main mathematical interests are group theory and combinatorics, especially linear spaces and block designs. I have also worked both many years ago and recently on the influence of the sizes of the sizes of conjugacy classes on finite groups.

This gives a few personal details, definitely not work, except a link to the other Dr Camina
