Heriot-Watt University   Department of Mathematics

Prof Bryan P Rynne

I am an emeritus professor in the Mathematics Department of Heriot-Watt University.
I joined the department in 1990, and became a reader in 1996, and then a professor in 2009. I retired in April 2021.
Before that I was an RA on several contracts in a random sequence of British Universities.

Between 2008-2012 I was the Chair of the Editorial Board of the Proceedings (Section A) of The Royal Society of Edinburgh.

Between 2012-2015 I had the misfortune to be Head of Department in the Heriot-Watt Department of Mathematics.
Following that I was promoted back to being a research mathematician.

Interests other than maths.
