Dr Nathan Broomhead
Lecturer in Pure Mathematics
School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics (Faculty of Science and Engineering)
I am a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics. This year I am lecturing courses to both foundation year and final year students. I do research in algebra and geometry.
- PhD in Mathematics (University of Bath, 2009); Thesis title: Dimer models and Calabi-Yau algebras.
- MMath (Hons) in Mathematics (Oxford University, 2004); Scholar of Merton College.
In the autumn semester I am a lecturer on the module:
- Applied Mathematics (MATH058) for foundation year students.
- Geometry and Algebra (MATH3604),
- Optimisation, Networks and Graphs (MATH3609).
I work in the area of algebraic geometry where it intersects homological algebra, representation theory, and theoretical physics. In particular, the study of derived categories of both geometric and algebraic origin has been a running theme of my research. I'm currently particularly interested in derived categories of gentle algebras and spaces of Bridgeland stability conditions.
My publications and preprints can all be found on the arXiv.
- I am currently organising the 2021 LMS Women in Mathematics workshop with Yinghui Wei, Colin Christopher, and Daniel Robertz.
- In 2018 I organised a conference on Geometry, Derived categories and Moduli spaces with Marina Logares.
Other academic activities
I currently organise the Plymouth Pure Mathematics seminar. We are currently running virtual seminars via zoom. If you would like to be added to our mailing list then please let me know.
