Statistics, Probability, Analysis and Applied Mathematics

SPAAM Seminar Series

The Statistics, Probability, Analysis and Applied Mathematics (SPAAM) seminar series will take place on Thursdays between 3-4pm in room B3.02 and virtually on the SPAAM Microsoft Teams channel. It will host a variety of talks from PhD students involved in applied mathematics research at Warwick and invited guests from other institutions (see the bottom of this page for the talk abstracts!).

Each seminar will usually host two speakers (unless otherwise stated) with each talk taking around 15-20 minutes with 5-10 minutes of questions afterwards. Speakers and committee members will hang around for some time after the talks for social tea/coffee and further questions. Please do contact one of the committee if you would like to join and be added to the MS Teams channel. Note that these talks may be recorded for later viewing on our Youtube channel so do join with audio and video off if you don't wish to feature!

If you would like to give a talk this term, please contact Matthew Coates ( or Swetha Usha Lal ( and we will find you a slot!
