Hi, I'm Steve. Welcome to my page.

I'm a Scottish-Australian mathematician/mathematical physicist, working in mathematical general relativity and geometric analysis. I am currently based at KTH, Stockholm.

For my somewhat less-than-professional opinions, you can follow me on Twitter (@Quasilocal).


I have left UNE and am now based entirely at KTH, Stockholm.

Two new papers on arXiv:
On a Penrose-like inequality in dimensions less than eight
Asymptotically flat extensions of CMC Bartnik data


My field of research is primarily general relativity. I am currently interested in problems related to mass/energy in general relativity, particularly the problem of quasilocal mass; however, I am also interested in many other questions arrising in general relativity and geometric analysis more broadly.
