Bas studied mathematics at the University of Amsterdam and obtained his PhD degree at Free University of Amsterdam in 2001. Before moving to Kent he held post-doctoral positions at Eurandom in Eindhoven, the TU Berlin, and at Warwick University where he was a Warwick Zeeman lecturer and a Marie-Curie fellow.
His research has been supported by a Talent Fellowship (2003-2004), a Marie-Curie Fellowship (2006-2007), an EPSRC First Grant (2012-2013), and an EPSRC Standard Grant (2017-2021). He has written numerous research papers and co-authored a research monograph with Nussbaum published in the prestigious Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics Series. He was an associate editor for the journal Linear Algebra and Its Applications between 2011 and 2018, and gave the annual Hans Schneider LAA lecture at Madison Wisconsin in 2012.
Bas teaches a variety of mathematics modules at various stages in our degree programmes.
He has successfully supervised PhD students and post-doctoral research associates.
