PhD Supervision Interests
I am happy to supervise PhD students who wish to work on a project related to my research expertise in Operator Theory and Non-commutative Analysis. Possible topics include: ideals of the algebra of bounded operators on a Banach space; the existence of approximate identities in such ideals; commutators and traces.
