Max Carter

I am a doctoral student in mathematics at the Université Catholique de Louvain in Belgium. I am supervised by Pierre-Emmanuel Caprace and Timothée Marquis and work in their large research group at UCLouvain. Previously, I completed my BMath, BMath(Hons) and MPhil at The Unversity of Newcastle in Australia. During my time in Newcastle I was supervised by George Willis and worked in his Zero-Dimensional Symmetry research group for 5 years.

My mathematical interests span throughout much of mathematics, though, my main research interests at the present time lie firmly in the fields of topological group theory, abstract harmonic analysis and functional analysis. More specifically, I'm interested in problems concerning locally compact groups, their representation theory and harmonic analysis, and related problems concerning operator algebras. I also have research experience working on problems in the direction of combinatorics (mostly graph theory) and theoretical computer science (mostly formal languages and automata).

Outside of academia I am a keen athlete: I spend a lot of time running and in the gym.
