Profile pages

Every member of the Maths departments has an official web page, their "profile", with an URL of the form:


At the risk of stating the obvious, when you leave Maths, your profile will cease to exist.

Editing your profile

Please ensure you are logged in and then simply click the Edit button that should be on your profile page. This will allow you to add some text about yourself. Certain information is added to the profile from different sources.

Room number and phone number

If these are listing as incorrect then:
If you are in DAMTP then contact your group or pavilion secretary.
If you are in DPMMS please contact Julia Blackwell. 

You cannot change them yourself.

Your photograph and email address and name

To change details like name, email address and photograph on your profile page please go to the here . If you are not using a CMS computer then you will need to be running the Maths VPN or using the Hotdesk remote desktop client in order to access the page. Changes made in the database are propagated to the profile pages overnight.  

You can force this to happen more quickly by making an edit to the text on your profile page and then saving the change. This will force the profile page to refresh itself and read the database.


To opt out of having your email, phone number or office or email address displayed on your profile page go to the link above and select the Profile Page Options.  You can also opt out of having a profile page. 

Alternatively for phone and office opt-outs contact your group or pavilion secretary (DAMTP), or Julia Blackwell (DPMMS). 

If you opt-in to having your office phone number showing but it does not show on the page this means it is not entered into the database. We only enter them if someone wants them to display. Contact one of the people above. 


Your publications are managed via the Symplectic Elements system.

User Pages

Some people have what we term 'User Pages' (Or person page) These are published under:

To activate this page create an index.html file in your public_html folder. 

These pages are available to maths staff members (currently includes emeritus with login access)  and  research students.  As with your profile page the page stops being published when you are no longer a current staff or student. 

If you are collaborating with us after you leave, this gives you a computer account. It does not keep your profile page and user page open.
