A/Prof. Daniel Chan is an associate professor and Head of the Department of Pure Mathematics.
He works in the area of non-commutative algebraic geometry, an exciting new field where sophisticated techniques from algebraic geometry have been imported to study non-commutative algebras. Much of his work has focussed on studying orders on projective surfaces which can be studied via a non-commutative adaptation of Mori's minimal model program. Other interests include finite dimensional algebras, non-commutative surfaces, moduli spaces in non-commutative algebra, the McKay correspondence and non-commutative rings arising from projective geometry such as the twisted homogeneous co-ordinate ring.
He is part of the Geometry group and the Algebra and Number Theory group.
He is also an associate editor for the Journal of the Australian Mathematical Society.
