Dr Jitse Niesen


I studied at the University of Twente, Netherlands (undergrad) and the University of Cambridge, followed by postdocs at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh and La Troe University, Melbourne. I have been in Leeds since 2007.

Research interests

My research interests are mostly in numerical analysis (geometric integration, exponential integrators) and dynamical systems (dynamics on networks, snaking, Evans function).
