I am a third year PhD student under the supervision of Professor Derek Holt. My area of research is in finite group theory, and at the moment I am looking at bounds on the fewest number of elements needed to  generate various classes of finite groups. Here is some stuff I've written for the arXiv:

Minimal generation of transitive permutation groups

Generating minimally transitive permutation groups
