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. You can read my CV for more detail.

I am primarily interested in fractal geometry and dynamical systems, in particular the geometry of self-similar and self-affine sets in Euclidean space and associated invariant measures. Find more information on my research page.

In my spare time I develop open-source software and occasionally I write about things that interest me. I also greatly enjoy cooking and taking photos.
