About Dr David Robertson

Dr Robertson received his BM (Hons 1) from the University of Newcastle in 2006. He began studying towards his PhD in 2007 under the supervision of Wojciech Szymanski. In 2008 he moved to the University of Southern Denmark to complete his studies, and graduated in November 2011.
The University of Wollongong welcomed Dr Robertson in 2012
Field of Study: Operator algebras, in particular, C*-algebras associated to Hilbert bimodules and higher rank generalisations. The theory of C*-algebras was originally developed as a formalisation of quantum mechanics, where observables of a physical system - quantities we can measure - can be represented as particular elements of a C*-algebra. Since then, the general theory of C*-algebras has been well developed and applied to many other areas of mathematics such as geometry and number theory. The benefit of associating C*-algebras to Hilbert bimodules is that certain structural properties of the C*-algebra important in classification may be formulated in terms of the underlying bimodule, which simplifies many calculations.
