Alastair Craw

I am a Reader in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath.

After completing my PhD at the University of Warwick in 2001, I was appointed as a Wylie Instructor at the University of Utah and later as a Simons Instructor at the University of Stony Brook. In 2006 I returned to the UK as a lecturer at the University of Glasgow, and I took up my current post at the University of Bath in 2013.

Research in Mathematics: My research establishes links between algebraic geometry and representation theory using techniques from geometric invariant theory, toric geometry, quiver representations, noncommutative algebras and derived categories.

My research is supported by a Research Project Grant (2021-25) from The Leverhulme Trust.

The Bath Geometry Seminar. I am one of the organisers of the COW seminar.


Teaching: In 2021/22 I teach MA40188 (Algebraic Curves).
