Simon Kristensen's homepage
For reasons unknown, you have made your way to my web-page. Most of
the stuff here is mathematics related, so if you have no interest in
mathematics, please move along. Nothing to see here!
The present version of the page is exclusively in English. In time, I
will add information in Danish for the benefit of any local
readers. For now, you will have to read the English version.
I currently work as a Lecturer (Associate Professor for those of you
who speak American) at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the
Aarhus University. In my previous position, I was funded by a
Fellowship from the Carlsberg Foundation. Prior to this, I was a Steno
Research Fellow for three years also at Aarhus. The Steno Fellowship
was awarded by the Danish Natural Sciences Research Council. I have
previously been employed by the University of Edinburgh and the
University of York. Before that, I was a post-graduate student in
Liverpool and Strasbourg and even further back, I was an
under-graduate student in here Aarhus. The full details are in my CV
(always assuming the currently posted version is up to date...).
I am originally from Denmark, so Viking blood flows in my veins. I was
born in Aarhus (a few hundred metres from my current office) and grew
up in Aalborg. For any visitors who are weak on Scandinavian
geography, these are the two largest cities in Jutland, the part of
Denmark which is shaped like the face of a man with a hat, and which
is attached to Germany. Aarhus is right beneath the nose and Aalborg
is just below the hat.
I think this is quite enough introductory chatter. Feel free to have a
look around. If you have not been scared off yet, there may be
frightening stuff elsewhere on this page.
