Assoc Prof Andrew James KrickerProf. Kricker's most significant research interest lies in the mathematical ramifications of current developments in mathematical and theoretical physics. To be precise, he is interested in the ramifications of certain developments in quantum field theory and quantum gravity in the fields of topology, algebra, and combinatorics. Prof. Kricker's particular speciality is in so-called "quantum topological invariants". These are invariants of knots, 3-manifolds, and various other low-dimensional topological structures, that arise from Topological Quantum Field Theories. More generally, he has a considerable general interest in the fields that surround this topic: knot theory, the theory of low-dimensional manifolds, Lie algebras, Hopf algebras, representation theory, homological algebra, algebraic combinatorics, and so on.
Assoc Prof Ang Whye TeongW. T. Ang's general research interest is in applied and engineering mathematics. Specific research topics that he has worked on include boundary integral equation methods, stress analysis around cracks, heat transfer with applications to modern engineering and biological systems, analyses of advanced materials (such as functionally graded materials and piezoelectric materials) and non-classical boundary value problems in physical and engineering sciences.

Assoc Prof Chew Lock YueDr Chew research interest is to investigate and uncover the fundamental physical mechanisms and organization principles of complex systems. He explores and elucidates the underlying behaviour and dynamics of these systems through theoretical modelling based on statistical and nonlinear physics. His current research focus is on the topic of: quantum complexity; quantum chaos and entanglement; statistical physics of protein aggregation; critical phenomena in social and coupled social-ecological systems; complexity measure and characterization of complex systems.
