## Researcher biography

Adrian grew up in Perth and double majored in Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics at the University of Western Australia. Soonafter, he ventured to Canberra to undertake a PhD, focussing on analytic number theory: an enchanting area where one perplexingly uses calculus and analysis to study discrete structures such as the set of prime numbers.

After this, he worked as a derivatives trader at Optiver APAC for five years and stayed on there as Head of Academic Partnerships. He currently straddles both industry and academia and believes they both have much to offer mathematicians.

Adrian is available (and invariably keen) to supervise honours, masters and PhD projects in analytic number theory.
