Ian received his PhD in applied analysis from TU Darmstadt in Germany. Following a postdoc position in Cardiff and a lecturer position in Aberystwyth, he has been at Kent since 2009.
IIan's research focuses on the theory of operators in Hilbert space with a particular focus on spectral problems for PDEs and ODEs. Current and recent projects involve:
MAST4005 Linear Mathematics
MAST5013 Real Analysis 2
Final year undergraduate project modules in Mathematics and Statistics
Ian has supervised PhD projects on topics ranging from abstract extension theory of operators to spectral properties of specific difference operators (Jacobi operators). Students wishing to pursue a PhD in the area of operator and spectral theory are encouraged to contact Ian.
