Personal profile

Personal profile

I'm a mathematician with a fairly broad spectrum of interests in the field. Perhaps most pronounced is differential geometry on manifolds and sheaves, but analysis related subjects as well, such as operator algebras and C*-algebras.

I started as lecturer at the University in May 2022, though I've also been affiliated with the University as an external lecturer since August 2021.

Research Interests

My interests lie mainly in the domain of differential geometry.

  • Recently I've been nudged towards application within Machine Learning. In short this would be Geometric Deep Learning.
  • Some graph theory.
  • Numerical modelling.


Courses in mathematics for programmes: Mathematics, Engineering, Marine Engineering and Software Engineering.

  • Mathematics 1
  • Mathematics 2
  • Discrete Mathematics
  • Linear Algebra
  • Advanced Analysis (Hilbert space theory and applications)

I'm in general course responsible and coordinator for my courses.
