INTRODUCTION
A/Prof. Daniel Chan is an associate professor and Head of the Department of Pure Mathematics.
RESEARCH INTERESTS
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.
ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES
He is also an associate editor for the Journal of the Australian Mathematical Society.
