  • Fellowship in 2012 at University of Hamburg
  • Scholarship in 2006 at University of Oxford

After obtaining a BSc (2004) and MPhil (2006) in mathematics at the University of Hong Kong, Dr Law moved to Oxford to read for a doctorate in combinatorics. Upon completion in 2011, a brief research stay at the University of Hong Kong ensued. Then in September 2012, he joined the Discrete Mathematics group in Uni-Hamburg.


Matroids are combinatorial objects that provide a general framework for many areas of combinatorics. In most cases, only finitary matroids are considered. One of the focus of the work group is to extend theorems in the finite world to the infinite one.
