I'm a maths PhD student at St Andrews
My name is Wilf Wilson. Since late 2014 I have been a PhD student in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the Univeristy of St Andrews. My supervisor is Dr James D. Mitchell, and the title of my PhD is currently High performance computing with semigroups. I am grateful to the Carnegie Trust, who are funding my postgraduate studies with a Carnegie Scholarship. I thank them for their vital support.
Mathematical interests and focus
At St Andrews, I am a member of
- the Algebra and Combinatorics research group, and
- the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Computational Algebra (CIRCA).
My mathematical tastes are still forming. Currently I am particularly interested in
- computational algebra,
- semigroup theory,
- graph theory,
I am particularly interested in these topics from a computational perspective. Computer programming has long been a hobby of mine, so I am delighted to be able to develop and make use of this interest as I continue to research mathematics.
