Thomas Bruun Madsen

Lecturer in Mathematics

Before joining the University of Buckingham, he was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at Aarhus University. From November 2013 till the end of January 2015, he was a Junior Visitor at Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio De Giorgi (Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa). Before that, shortly after obtaining his PhD under the supervision of Professor Andrew Swann, he spent two years at King’s College London, working with Professor Simon Salamon.

Dr Madsen’s current research interests are in the area of differential geometry and mathematical physics. He particularly enjoys analysing and finding explicit solutions to partial differential equations that arise in a geometric context (e.g., Einstein’s equations), using symmetry techniques.

I you are a student interested in pursuing a project with Dr Madsen, please feel free to contact him.
