Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Steven Thornton and I am passionate about many things in life including mathematics, science, and technology. Here you will find information about my academic career, many of the fun projects I work on, and blog posts on a wide range of topics.
I am a PhD candidate in the Applied Mathematics Department at Western University under the supervision of Rob Corless and Marc Moreno Maza. My research interests range from numerical analysis and symbolic computation to machine learning and its applications. You can find more information about one of my main research projects, the Bohemian Eigenvalue Project, at bohemianeigenvalues.com.
When I’m not learning new things I enjoy long-distance running (I’ve run 4 half-marathons), biking, rock climbing and cooking.
