Dr Matthew Jones
As a principal lecturer in mathematics Matt is currently developing and contributing to a number of new programmes in the mathematical sciences area in the School of Science and Technology. He previously acted as Director of Programmes for Business and Management from October 2010-February 2013 where he managed the suite of postgraduate programmes and MBAs succesfully culminating in a review and validation of the whole provision in 2013. He has also been programme leader for a number of masters degrees in the Business School.
BSc (Hons), PGCert HE, PhD (London)
Matt studied for a PhD in mathematics at UCL specialising in the interconnections between operator theory, functional analysis and complex analysis in the context of composition operators. Since then he has continued to develop his research profile and currently works in such diverse areas as complex analysis and differential and algebraic topology. His most recent work showed that the Nielsen kernel of an arbitrary orbifold has empty interior, this extended and refined a proof of this fact on Riemann surfaces.
Matt has taught mathematics and statistics to a wide range of audiences, from first year business students to engineers and computer scientists. In the last few years he has concentrated on teaching applied statistics and operational research to management students.
