Robert Low

I am a reader in  Mathematics Physics at Coventry University. I obtained  my first degree, MA in Mathematics and  Natural Philosophy from Aberdeen University in 1982. My postgraduate research was carried out under the supervision of Prof Roger Penrose and Dr Nicholas Woodhouse in the geometric physics group at Oxford University, resulting  in the award of the degree of DPhil in 1988. Since 1986 I have been a member of the School of Computing, Electronics and Maths at Coventy University. 

I have published numerous research papers, and have been invited to speak at several international conferences and meetings. I am a Member of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and of the London Mathematical Society.
