Curriculum Vitae

S Troscheit I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Waterloo (Canada) working with Kathryn Hare and Kevin Hare. From November to December 2017 I was a programme fellow at the Institut Mittag-Leffler in Stockholm, Sweden. I completed my PhD at the University of St Andrews (Scotland) in April 2017 under the supervision of Kenneth Falconer and Mike Todd. I am interested in random fractal geometry, symbolic dynamics, dimension theory, and their interplay with number theory.

I am an active long distance sailor (mostly single-handed) and have sailed most of the British, German, Dutch, Belgian and French Atlantic coast with several North Sea crossings. I am a radio amateur with full UK license and am a SCUBA dive instructor and keen technical diver.
