Stuart Martin
I hold Mathematical degrees from the
Universities of Glasgow, Oxford and Cambridge and was Snell
Scholar at Balliol, a Lecturer of the House at Christ Church and
H. Salvesen Research Fellow at New College. My doctoral thesis appeared in 1988 and I was the first student ever supervised by Karin Erdmann.
Since 1990 I have been an Official
Fellow of Magdalene College, where I am the Director of Studies in
Mathematics. I am also a member of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics where I hold the title of Affiliated Lecturer.
My research lies in the
representation theory of finite and algebraic groups.
In particular the representation theory of the
symmetric groups, Schur algebras, Hecke algebras and
other diagram algebras, together with the associated
algebraic combinatorics.

As Director of Studies in Mathematics at Magdalene, I teach all aspects of the pure and applicable course in all parts of the Tripos.
In Michaelmas Term 2022 I will lecture a graduate course in Modular Representation Theory. In
Lent Term 2023 I will lecture Part II
Coding and Cryptography.
I have acted as PhD supervisor to a number of students,
including Tan Kai Meng who is at the National University of
Singapore, Matt Fayers who is at Queen Mary,
London, Chris Bowman who is at the University of York, Amit Hazi who is at City, University of London
and Stacey Law who is at DPMMS and Emmanuel
College, Cambridge. My
current research students are
Robert Spencer and Colin Krawchuk.
A handful of recent papers in which I have
been involved are
listed below.
