May 2021: Karen Vogtmann elected as Fellow of the Royal Society!
Congratulations to Karen Vogtmann for election to Fellow of the Royal Society for her exceptional contributions to science.
The full citation reads:
Vogtmann played a major role in shaping Geometric Group Theory. She was a pioneer of the modern approach to automorphism groups of free groups, one of the richest interfaces of geometry and group theory. She established an agenda that has guided spectacular developments in the field for thirty years, promoting the powerful analogy between automorphism groups of free groups, mapping class groups of surfaces, and arithmetic lattices in semisimple Lie groups. Her 1986 paper with Culler on moduli of graphs is a founding document, and her fundamental work on the cohomology of Out(F) and homology stability are landmarks in the field.
April 2021: Congratulations to Oleg Pikhurko for winning an ERC Advanced Grant
Congratulations to Oleg Pikhurko for being awarded a European Research Council Advanced Grant. These grants fund leading researchers across Europe. The grant 'Finite and Descriptive Combinatorics', will expand the existing connections and build new bridges between distinct areas of mathematics focusing on combinatorial-type structures.

April 2021: Maths PhD student Andrew Rout captains Warwick's victory in University Challenge
Congratulations to Warwick's University Challenge team on their victory in the 2021 University Challenge Grand Final. The Warwick team, comprised of Richard Pollard, George Braid, Owain Burrell, and captained by mathematics PhD student Andrew Rout, defeated Magdalene College, Cambridge. When Andrew is not competing in University Challenge, he is researching nonlinear dispersive PDEs and many-body quantum problems.
December 2020: Congratulations to David Loeffler on winning ERC Consolidator grant
November, 2020: Congratulations to Kat Rock for winning the HATMEPP II Grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
Even in the absence of our usual strawberry tea celebration, we have still be able to award our students high levels of attainment during 2019/20
The Warwick Mathematics Institute is saddened to hear of the passing of Prof. Lawrence Markus in January 2020.
