## Seamus Albion

I am a PhD student at the University of Vienna where my advisor is Christian Krattenthaler. As such I am a member of the combinatorics group and the Vienna School of Mathematics. Before coming to Vienna I did my undergraduate and MPhil at the University of Queensland where my advisor was Ole Warnaar.

My research interests (at this stage) lie in special functions and combinatorics.

### Teaching

At UQ I was a teaching assistant/tutor for several undergradute course including MATH2302 (Discrete Mathematics II) and MATH3303 (Algebra).### Music

When I'm not doing mathematics I'm usually thinking about music.

I play saxophone with Jeremy Neale, and have played saxophone for Rinse and
The John Steel Singers. You can hear me on SPOD's song *Golden Gaytime*.

I used to play clarinet in the UQ Symphony Orchestra. For a list of works I performed with them click here.
