G'day! I am Zoe Wyatt, a mathematician based at King’s College London. My research lies at the intersection of general relativity, differential geometry and hyperbolic equations. Concretely, I study PDEs derived from theories of higher dimensional gravity, string theory, particle physics and cosmology. Please get in touch if you are interested in doing a PhD.

My email is firstname.surname@kcl.ac.uk. My address is: Department of Mathematics, King’s College London, Strand Building, Strand, London, WC2R 2LS. I am also seeking a solution to a two-body four-paw problem.

Some more maths

  • A copy of my thesis can be found here.
  • My submission for the Edinburgh School of Maths Postgraduate Research Student Essay Prize, and my first year MIGSAA project.
  • In my Part III essay in 2014 I generalised the proof of local well-posedness of BSSN to high dimensions, n+1 for n>3. This was actually not known before then.

In my spare time, I love bird-watching, cycling and reading.
