My name is Martin Wolf and I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) of Mathematics at the University of Surrey. I am a member of the Fields, Strings, and Geometry Group in the Department of Mathematics in the Faculty of Engineering & Physical Sciences.

I hold a PhD in Mathematical Physics from the Leibniz Universität Hannover. I also hold a Diplom (MSc by research) and a Vordiplom (BSc) in Physics both of which I received from the Technische Universität Dresden.

Prior to my appointment in Surrey, I was a Senior Research Fellow and College Tutor at the Wolfson College in Cambridge, an STFC Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge, and a Research Associate at the Imperial College London.

Please visit my biography page for a detailed curriculum vitae.

I am a mathematical physicist with interests in string theory. My current research ranges from formal areas in mathematics to applied areas in theoretical/mathematical physics all of which centre around geometry:

  • Twistor Geometry and Applications to Differential Geometry
  • Higher Gauge Theory and Category Theory, and Membranes in String and M-Theory
  • Integrability and Hidden Symmetries in String and Gauge Theory
  • String Theory/Gauge Theory Dualities
  • Instantons and Solitons
  • Supergravity Theories
  • Geometry, Monge—Ampere Structures, and Fluid Dynamics
