Postgraduate Research Showcase 2017
Congratulations to Sophie Meakin for winning the Faculty of Science prize and best overall poster prize, and to Cameron Lack for winning the runner-up prize at the poster competition of the Postgraduate Research Showcase 2017, University of Warwick. Tim Pollington was a finalist in the Three Minute Thesis competition talking about visceral leishmaniasis. Well done to all of them!
Congratulations to Tom Machon and Davide Michieletto for winning the Faculty of Science PhD Thesis Prizes!
Congratulations to Tom Machon (supervisor Dr Gareth Alexander) and Davide Michieletto (supervisor Professor Matthew Turner) who have been awarded the Faculty of Science PhD Thesis Prizes for their research on Aspects of Geometry and Topology in Liquid Crystalline Phases, and Topological Interactions in Ring Polymers, respectively. Tom is now a postdoc with Randy Kamien at UPenn, and Davide is a postdoc with Davide Marenduzzo at the University of Edinburgh. The Centre wishes them all the best in their careers!
Funding For New Mathsys CDT Won!
We are pleased to announce that the recent bid for funding for a new Centre for Docotral Training in Mathematics of Real-World Systems has been successful. The Centre will be funded by the EPSRC, BBSRC, and will also be able to boast strong connections and in some cases additional funding from external collaborators. The first students to join the Centre will start on its 1+3 MSc+PhD Programme in September 2014.
