Dr Matias Gonzalo Delgadino

Non-Stipendiary Lecturer in Applied Mathematics

Hooke Research Fellow at the Mathematical Institute

Introduction

I did my undergraduate studies at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (Argentina), and then went to the University of Maryland (United States) to do my PhD in Applied Mathematics under the supervision of Antoine Mellet.

After my PhD, I held postdoctoral positions at UNESCO's ICTP (Italy) under the supervision of Francesco Maggi and Imperial College (United Kingdom) under the supervision of Greg Pavliotis and José Carrillo.

Currently, I am a Professor Adjunto from PUC-Rio de Janeiro (on leave) and a Hooke Fellow of the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford.

Teaching

In my past positions, I have taught a breadth of topics specializing in analysis and particularly mathematical modelling using Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). At Queen's, I will be taking care of the tutorials for some courses of applied mathematics. My teaching/learning philosophy is to learn while doing, so during tutorials expect me to encourage students to take the initiative.

Research

I have always wanted to understand the world around me, and the tool I have chosen is applied mathematics.

My research interests are mostly related to mathematical modelling through Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). For the most part, my work is devoted to understanding self-organisation phenomena in systems with a large number of particles/agents. Using this perspective, I am currently trying to understand the dynamics of parameter training in commonly used machine learning algorithms.
