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 before transitioning into his current role as Head of Academic Partnerships. He spends most of his time talking to students about all of the exciting applications of mathematics in the real world (and quite often he talks about prime numbers).
