Matthias Fresacher is an emerging researcher whose work focuses on bridging the gap between pure mathematics and theoretical physics research. Currently a Master of Philosophy student under the supervision of Asst. Prof. Peter Hochs (Radboud University), Assoc. Prof. Nicholas Buchdahl, Assoc. Prof. Thomas Leistner and Dr. David Baraglia at the School of Mathematical Sciences, Matthias is investigating how the analytic Laplace operator on a manifold can be approximated in a discrete setting using triangulations. By formalising this link, his thesis will lay the mathematical foundations for further understanding of the Discrete Magnetic Laplacian (DML), a special case of the Schrödinger operator.

Completing his Bachelor's degree in Adelaide and on exchange in Singapore with a published paper, Matthias strives to continue to build his academic presence by researching a growing array of problems in various areas of pure mathematics. With a doctoral aim of collaborating across disciplines, Matthias plans to share his mathematical expertise to generate new theories and ideas that may lead to new innovations just like Einstein did with the development of manifolds and differential geometry.

My research interests lie at the intersection of different areas of pure mathematics, theoretical physics and computer science. For example examining the relationship between Laplacian operators in an analytic and discrete setting or collaborating with physicists to develop new physics theories based on pure mathematical tools.
