Biography

Michael Mc Gettrick holds a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics (String Theory) from the University of Notre Dame (Indiana), and a Bachelors Degree in Theoretical Physics from Trinity College Dublin. He has carried out research at

  • The University of Notre Dame (Indiana)
  • Imperial College London
  • The University of Bath
  • Computer Algebra Nederland (Amsterdam)
  • Waterford Institute of Technology
  • MINES ParisTech (Paris)
  • The National University of Ireland, Galway
  • Johannes Kepler Universitat (Linz)
  • Universite Paris-Sud (Paris)

Originally working as a string theorist, he has since carried out research in (the mathematics of) discrete event dynamical systems, computer algebra (symbolic computation) and quantum information (quantum computation).
