Teaching

Beside the usual trinity Lectures-Tutorials-Textbooks, there are many other ways to discover and learn mathematics. For instance, the Mathematics Department hosts the Undergraduate Mathematics Seminar and runs a Mathematics Scholar Discussion Group where various topics rarely seen in class are discussed.

Also, undergraduate students interested in exploring more advanced mathematics are invited to apply (usually early in January) for a Research Assistantships (USRA) for the summer months at the Department of Mathematics. Supervision is available in a variety of areas related to existing research conducted by faculty members, including algebraic topology, category theory, homological algebra, number theory, real and complex analysis, semigroups, algebraic groups, operator theory, graph theory, knot theory and noncommutative geometry. More information can be found here.

Putnam Competition 2017

I am running training sessions for the 2017 Putnam Competition. Everyone interested in problem solving is welcome (no need to write the Putnam exam in December). For more information, please visit my Putnam webpage.
