Matt is an Associate Professor in Mathematics; he 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 Riemann surface theory and covering maps as well as on the operator theoretic character of composition operators. Matt's most recent work generalises a well-established compactness condition for composition operators with univalent symbol to those with universal covering maps as symbols using a novel use of the Poincare series for Fuchsian groups.
Matt is currently the programme leader for the BSc/MMath Mathematics degrees as well as the BSc/MSci Mathematics with Computing degrees. He has taught at all levels, from foundation year all the way to PhD supervision.
His interests lie in how students develop mathematics problem solving skills at undergraduate levels.
Matt's works in the broad areas of complex analysis and functional analysis. His main research interest is in the study of composition operators on spaces of analytic functions.
Additionally he has an interest in the development of higher level problem solving skills in undergraduate mathematics curricula.
