Jonivar Skullerud
Lecturer in Mathematical Physics
Department of Mathematical Physics NUI, Maynooth County Kildare IRELAND


Jonivar studied physics and philosophy at the University of Trondheim,

Norway, culminating in a dissertation on the philosophy of quantum

field theory.  He went on to do his PhD at the University of

Edinburgh, specialising in lattice QCD.  After postdoctoral positions

in Adelaide, DESY (Hamburg), Amsterdam and Trinity College Dublin he

joined the Mathematical Physics department at the National University

of Ireland Maynooth as a lecturer in 2007.  His main current research

interests are in QCD and QCD-like theories at extremes of temperature

and density, and non-perturbative quark and gluon correlation

functions.  Jonivar helped organise Ireland's first Particle Physics

Masterclasses and public events at the Euroscience Open Forum in 2012,

and joined IPPOG as Ireland's representative in 2012.
