Jack Smith
I am a College Associate Lecturer, and the Director of Studies in Pure Mathematics, at St John's College, Cambridge. I am also an Affiliated Lecturer in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics.
Previously I was a visiting researcher at the Fields Institute, Toronto, a postdoc at University College London, and a PhD student of Ivan Smith.
Here you can find my thesis, me on arXiv, and my department profile page.
I can be contacted by email at j.smith AT dpmms.cam.ac.uk.

Teaching
In Michaelmas 2020 I lectured Part III Differential Geometry. Course resources, including video lectures and example sheets, are available to registered students on the course Moodle page.
In June 2018 I gave a short lecture course on K-theory to PhD students at the London School of Geometry and Number Theory. Expanded notes are availble here.
