Current Seggie Brown Fellows
We currently have two Seggie Brown Fellows, Brent Pym and Charles Strickland-Constable.
Brent grew up in Canada, and completed his PhD in Mathematics at the University of Toronto in 2013. He spent six months as a Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University before moving to the University of Oxford, where he was a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the Mathematical Institute and a Junior Research Fellow at Jesus College. He joined the University of Edinburgh in January 2017. His research interests lie at the interface between geometry, algebra, and mathematical physics; they include Poisson brackets, deformation quantization, moduli spaces, singular differential equations, and divergent series.
Charles studied mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge and obtained his PhD in theoretical physics from Imperial College London. Subsequently, he held postdoctoral positions at the University of Hamburg and CEA/Saclay before moving to Edinburgh in the autumn of 2017. His research interests lie at the interface of geometry and string theory. He has recently worked on descriptions of supersymmetric backgrounds and consistent truncations in the language of generalised geometry.
