Transcripts and recordings:
I endeavour to transcribe and record my conference presentations and invited talks to make them more accessible, however these are often of works in progress.
Please contact me if you are interested in finding out whether a transcript, written paper, slide deck, video recording or audio recording is available for a conference paper or presentation I have made.
