Michael Tuite earned a B.Sc. in Mathematical Science in 1978, an M.Sc. in 1979 and a Ph.D. in Theoretical High Energy Physics in 1984 from the University of Cambridge. Michael spent four years at Trinity College Dublin as a post-doctoral fellow, one year at Dublin City University as a contract lecturer and two years as a research scholar at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. Michael joined the Department of Mathematical Physics in 1990. Michael has collaborated with a number of theoretical physicists and mathematicians with a strong research link with the Univ. California Santa Cruz. He has also been invited to many international centres in the past number of years such as the Univ. of Cambridge, ITEP Moscow, Tokyo University, Ohio State Univ., University of Montreal and Imperial College London.
Michael has research interests both in theoretical physics (quantum field theory and conformal field theory) and pure mathematics (vertex operator algebras, the Monster group and modular groups). Most recently he has been working on genus two and higher conformal field theory and vertex operator algebras in collaboration with Geoff Mason of UC Santa Cruz and Alexander Zuevsky of NUI, Galway.
