Lecturer in Mathematics, Flinders University

I was born in Germany while my father was on sabbatical there, but grew up in Melbourne and then Adelaide, where I did my undergraduate studies in Mathematical Physics and Pure Mathematics.

I went to Oxford to do graduate study with Roger Penrose on general relativity and conformal field theory (although both of these reduce to differential equations if you stare at them hard enough!)

Since my return to Australia I've lectured at Adelaide University, worked as a radar signal processor at DSTO, and bayesian analyst at CSIRO before joining CSEM to work on iterative optimisation of parametric bayesian models for medical image analysis.

Since then I have also found fun people to work on mathematical models of high-rate algal ponds and lithium polymer batteries.
