Peter D'Eath is a University Teaching Officer in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP). He works at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences in Wilberforce Road. He has been a fellow of Wolfson College since 2000, taking a particular interest in musical activities and the Press Fellows at Wolfson. He also tried to help get students' views across by serving on the College Meals Committee for several years.

Peter has been the Director of Studies for Part III Mathematics for many years. Part III is an international course; it attracts students from all over the world to study in both Pure and Applied Maths, in order to gain the equivalent of a Master's degree. Numerous Part III students go on to do a PhD, either at Cambridge or elsewhere. Being Director of Studies for Part III Maths is unusually interesting: one gets to know a diverse range of students from many backgrounds, cultures, and countries.

Peter's research centres on General Relativity, Gravitation, and Black Holes.
