Alex Rutar


I am a maths PhD student at the University of St Andrews, Scotland (supervised by Jonathan Fraser and Kenneth Falconer) in the analysis group. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo, Ontario.

I am primarily interested in fractal geometry and dynamical systems, including (but not limited to) the geometry of self-similar and self-affine sets and associated invariant measures, multifractal analysis, and general dimension theory and dimension interpolation. You can find more information on my research page, in my CV, looking at my publications, or reading my expository work.

In my spare time I develop open-source software which mostly centres around tooling, such as a Vim session manager, LaTeX templating software, or an automatic bibliography generator. I also greatly enjoy cooking and taking photos.
