PhD in Applied Mathematics, UNSW Sydney, 2018
BSc (Hons) in Applied Mathematics, UNSW Sydney, 2013
Alexander Gilbert completed a BSc (Hons) in Applied Mathematics at UNSW Sydney in 2013, followed by a PhD in Applied Mathematics in 2018 also at UNSW. For both degrees his focus was on computational mathematics. After completing his PhD, Dr Gilbert spent two years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Germany at the University of Heidelberg from 2018-2020. In late 2020, he returned to UNSW to work as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
Dr Gilbert's research is on computational mathematics and numerical analysis. He is interested in numerical methods for approximating integrals with very high dimension, with a particular focus on applications coming from uncertainty quantification. His research spans a broad range of areas of numerical integration, including algorithms, software implementation, new applications in uncertainty quantification, numerical analysis/theory and quasi-Monte Carlo quadrature rules.
